We didn’t go skiing today. Instead we put the chains on Louie, went sledding and had a snowball fight. Sat up until midnight reading letters from home. Decided that our lives are ruled completely by fate.
We were in Hindelang, Germany, where were you at the end of 1962?
A daily diary of a journey in 1962. Please post comments about where you were then on the Background page.
1962 was pivotal. This is the background:
It was a year colored by the Cuban Missile Crisis, an escalating involvement in Vietnam, the Berlin Wall and the Cold War with Russia, Civil Rights issues, a nascent space program, Nelson Mandela in prison, Betty Friedan's, The Feminist Mystique, the Beatles, Rolling Stones and the death of Marilyn Monroe.
