THE DIARIES OF PAUL K LYONS - 1977

After a short visit to Uruguay, I met up with Chilean friends in Buenos Aires. We went together to Paraguay and Brazil. Although I hoped to work my passage back to Europe on a container ship, I ended up paying for a ticket on a passenger liner.

Diary 4, which starts in December 1976, is a short one, covering only the last three months (to March 1977) of my travelling period. However, this particular diary also marks the start of a more self-conscious, sometimes flowery, sometimes surreal, style of writing which was to infect my diaries for some years to come. (However, this may not always be apparent, since I'm likely to trim back much of my worst excesses n this regard.) Diary 5 begins in March, a few days after my return to England, and continues through to August that year. Diary 6 begins in August and charts a difficult period of settling down.
