Great holmertz 2019-07-20 11:34

Hello Malgo,
This day exactly 50 years ago I was in Rome with a girlfriend. We happened to see the transmission from the moon through the window of a bar. We just stod there in the street for a couple of minutes, without hearing anything, and that was it. We just vaguely knew the Americans were on their way. News didn't spread so fast before the internet days. This visit must have been a great experience to you, even though it is hard to capture the excitement of that event in a few photos from a museum so much later. But interesting photos anyway.
Best regards,

Smile To holmertz: Rome in 1969

Hello Gert, Thank you for you words.
You didn't show any pictures from Rome 1969. It would be interesting to see. Haven't you any?
Have a nice Sunday. In Warsaw it is raining. I have work to do, so it is fine, no need to water the garden.

Hello Malgo,
I have lots of slides from Rome, Florence, Ravenna and Venice in 1969, but I don't think they are very good, and they need scanning. From that journey, on my way home, I have posted some photos from Hungary and one from West Germany. Perhaps I also have some from Yugoslavia.
Greetings from sunny Stockholm (but there may be rain in the afternoon),
