Well, we’re off on another leg of our trip to Greece and Italy and back to Youth Hostels. They are not as comfortable but sure lots cheaper. There weren’t any open in Spain or Portugal which was too bad for us. Mailing three boxes home, sure hope they get there.
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.
