I'm going to share some photos from Expo 67. I'll try to give them all captions. Forgive me if I posted some of these a couple years ago. U.S. Guides were not permitted to visit the Cuban Pavilion. When my father visited, he and I went anyway. What was the big deal? and I visited it, as you can see, in my uniform. I managed to escape being found out! There were at least two guides that were sent home for various reasons. Other than the Cuba Pavilion, I was a good girl! One of the high points of my time there was giving a PR tour to Ralph Bunche and his wife and kids. What an honor! These photos were either taken by me or a friend. I'm in the Johnson photo on the escalator (far left). He had just passed my station, and I reached out to shake his hand but was nearly knocked over my security. In uniform! and still! The concert was on the U.S. day. Each nation had its own special day. I uploaded the concert that took place on that day at Place-des-nations. AMAZING! that's when I got to meet my hero Herbie Mann. Outside the pavilion, I saw the Dead and the Airplane. I have photos I took at the Place Ville Marie park. I played my flute with the best! What a summer! I should say that the Marines had all served in Nam. Many had purple hearts and most of them were pretty raw from the experience. They provided more than security for the pavilion. Well, I'll get around to scanning more as time permits. ENJOY!
