Hi Jim, By happenstance, made a visit to your site (http://wiesbaden64.com) a couple days back – it’s been a while. Thanks for adding notice on the passing of Dan Dundas. I was an acquaintance of Dan’s during the school year ’64, but wouldn’t say we were close buddies. We just seemed to visit many of the same places at the same time. Then there was that trip to Rome (Roma ’64). Not sure how, but several of us formed our own little adventure group on the trip down – perhaps we were all in the same compartment. It was Bob Eckert, Ron MacKnight, Buddy Hesse, myself and Dan Dundas. Except for an audience with Pope Paul VI (to have my grandmother’s Rosary beads blessed), we stayed lost for most of that trip. Wine, women and song while on far-off adventures to the sea and back (via Vespa) were a daily routine for us. Six days just wasn’t enough.
Remember the layover in Milan? As on our travels to the coast, we again indulged ourselves at a nearby Piazza. With days of practice behind us, we had gotten pretty good with the British tunes coming out of Liverpool – good enough for an invite to a party that night. Unfortunately, we had a train to catch. Aw, such bamboline – the stories that might have been told.
ATTACHMENTS: Just some things to add to your gallery – if you have a mind to.
