Zurich is built on the hillsides and from every place there is a lovely view. Right off the main Bahnhofstrasse are many tiny narrow streets to explore. Today we went to see a movie expecting to see Cary Grant and Doris Day speak German. Very disappointed. It was in English with German and French subtitles!!! Came home and had scrambled eggs for dinner.
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.
