Latest Contribution: Life in Venezuela

8 March 2011

We were pleased to receive this account from Graham of life in Venezuela during the 1960’s.

Graham Nicholas first went to work in Venezuela in 1965 with his wife and two young sons and his daughter was born there seven months later.

During the four years Graham and his family lived in Cardon they enjoyed many trips around the country in a variety of second-hand vehicles, including being towed by an American taxi in their broken-down Opel Rekord. In those days, reliable cars were hard to come by.

We are looking forward to receiving photos of Venezuela from Graham in the future.

Graham returned to Venezuela in 1995 as a consultant before finally returning to UK in 1997. Graham is now retired and lives in Surrey, UK.

If you have memories of Venezuela please get in touch, or, if you’re there now then how about sending us your experiences and we’ll see how they compare to Graham’s. Graham’s entire collection is now archived here at the EAC and is available for research.
