Skied today on tremendously steep hill with big type moguls. Tonight we went to the Tyrolean evening at the Praxmair. It ws really quite good and it cost us 50 shillings. After it was over some of the guys came over and asked us to dance.
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.
