Drove from Erlangen to Zurich. First stopped in Wintethur so we could stay in the Schloss there. Found that there was no heat and they said Zurich was better. So we drove on to Zurich. The drive from Erlangen was just lovely. We passed very interesting towns like Schaffhausen along the way but we couldn't stop. We had to get to Zurich before the Herberge closed.

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.
