Arosa horse races
We left Arosa and went through San Mortitz to Lugano driving along Lake Como. It was sunny but still quite cold. We are now in the Italian sector of Switzerland and the only thing Swiss is the money. A man at tourist bureau helped us wrap our packages and fill out the customs papers.
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.
