Iquitos Peru Expat Wally Lloyd Dies
A friend of mine, Wally Lloyd was found hung in Iquitos, Peru the other day. There is a little mystery as to whether he killed himself, or someone killed him, nonetheless it will not change the fact, that Wally Lloyd is dead.

I will write a Travel Tips with the solution
----------------------------------



I set up a Hostel in Iquitos for another man, I made Wally the Manager, he was a good guy. He was the same as most expats, he drank too much, he arrived confused, and lived confused. However, all in all he was harmless, truly a good guy.

Wanted or unwanted, the truth is I wanted Wally as a friend, and when I went to Iquitos last time, one of the people I hoped to sit around and talk with most was Wally. He we busy, he lived a long way away from the center of Iquitos, we just did not have a chance to sit around and talk about nothing, now I have a regret.

I am never sure what happens to Expats, one day they are light hearted, living the good life, and the next day they bring the serious world of their homeland to roost in their new home. I left a serious world, I escaped a too serious world, to live the life of a wanderer. Wally left England for a new world, now the new world has killed him.

Becoming to serious can kill you, just a couple of years ago Marvin in Manila, Philippines was stabbed to death.

The Prime Directive of travel it to enjoy yourself, and truly I jest when I say this, because to me, this is the obvious Prime Direct of life. We must do more things in a day that make us happy, then things that make us sad, it is need, not a want.
