  1. It was – and is – a WWYW (WhereWereYouWhen) moment in human history. I and wife were at Stanford housing in Menlo Park.
    We followed the moon trip from Get-go. Walter Cronkite was the anchor at CBS. The last 4 hours we sat glued in front of the tele. Finally came the landing and then an hour later, Neil Armstrong descended the steps and set his foot on the moon’s surface, with those unforgettable words: That was one small step for a man; a giant step for mankind. I went out to look at the full moon.
    I myself have made a record of it as above in the Diary section of my book Uganda Asians.
