Just got home from a two week vacation on the island of Sylt, in nothern Germany. My wife and I have have been going there for years (at least those years when we were within reasonably striking distance) and we both have a nice all-over tan (yes, nude beaches and no, no one ran away screaming when they saw me sans vetment).
Pleased to see so much discussion about various things that memories drag out.
Jim – You were right, it was the Alhambra and I had a great part-time job of selling popcorn, candy and drinks for the PX. I think I did that for most of my time in Saigon during my junior year at ACS.
I just Googled Ngo Dinh Diem and read that he was killed in 1963. My family was living above the PX on Phan Dinh Phung (?) during the Feb. 1962 attempted coup – bombing of the palace. Ahhh, great times those were, living on the cusp of history.
Remember the tea dances at the Circe Sportiff? and yes, the great bikinis on the ladies….
Good to be home but only for a week and them I’m off to Frankfurt for three months, but I’ll be in touch.
