Houses built into the hills on the way to Granada
We left for Granada and the drive was beautiful. We saw the strangest houses just before reaching Granada. They are caves dugout into the mountain sides. But some have doors and windows and fronts of stucco. Others just have holes in the rocks. Sometimes you only see a chimney and smoke above the ground.
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.
