On Sunday morning, 292 Australians managed to get on a plane leaving for Sydney from a military base in Lima, Peru. Many were not so lucky. They now face an uncertain future in a country under full military lock down.
Around 200,000 Australians have flooded back into the country since March 17. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) would not name an exact figure, but thousands of Australians are estimated to be still be stuck overseas, from Italy, to Panama, to Nepal.
There are more than 100 Australians still stuck in Peru, with no immediate prospect of help. This is one of their stories.
