Paddington Bear is ‘not from around here’, every fan knows that. He is from the deepest, darkest Peru. There, he was put on the SS Karenia by his Aunt Lucy, because she could no longer take care of him. She hoped that someone in London would provide for him. This is the route Paddington took on the SS Karenia. The blue crosses are the place where another of Paddington’s marmalade jars was empty. As you can see, he had just enough food with him.
