[[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] Wednesday 8 February 39th Day 326 Days to come [[/preprinted]] Up about 6 and found us anchored on east side of Gorgona. Never saw a more densely forested place. Just a few playas with coconuts and fishermen's huts. They came out in canoes but we weren't very successful in getting a peon.

Two large boats docked - Santa Maria & Colombo, latter from Genoa with refugees for Chile. Visited the boats & had a couple of martinis on the Grace Liner. Bed early but a bunch in next room chatter all the time so got dressed & wrote up this diary till midnight. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] Tuesday 14 February 45th Day St. Valentine's Day 320 Days to come [[/preprinted]] By autocar to Km. 18. About 3 hrs. collecting. Dense forest and then waded up a small stream. Many palms but few in condition. Car broke down a few yds. from Km 18 station, & we had to push (sometimes downhill riding) to Km 11. Phoned for auto to meet us on highway 2 km. distant. Very tired on returning. Continuous hot weather. Boats are stalled on San Juan River & we shall presently have to give that up.
[[preprinted]] Wednesday 15 February 46th Day 319 Days to come [[/preprinted]] Garcia took auto for 4 hr. trip to end of highway to R. Dagua & got a lot of stuff. I worked on yesterdays collections.

[[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] Thursday 16 February 47th Day 318 Days to come [[/preprinted]] Worked on plants a while then the swell gov't launch took up to Agua Dulce for palms, etc. In cellar most of pm.

Took 4 p.m. freight back to Buentina. Letter from Gutman to station agent at Cordoba fixed everything. Wrote Al. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] Saturday 18 February 49th Day 316 Days to come [[/preprinted]] From 7 am to 5 pm. in cellar working on plants. Hot sunny day, with few clouds. Went with a gang to see Cali trim Buentina at basketball. They planned a party for me and had swapped a bottle of champagne for whiskey. I backed out finally - too darn tired & sleepy. We find the "Carabobo" can take us to Solano Mon. but no boat to get back in time for Bogota.
