Historical Photo of the Week: Jackie in Mexico City



Another photo from the Kennedy’s 1962 diplomatic visit to Mexico City. The president and first lady attended a performance at the ballet folklorico and joined Mexican president Lopez Mateos to greet the dancers after the performance. Interestingly, I’m finding a lot of photos (and one video) of this trip, but not much in the way of text.

    Now I know where Donald Trump got his self visual reality from. Actually the visit with El Señor Aleman was all pomp and ceremony with very little substance. T’was the year of The Cuban Missile Crisis, the cranking up of involvement with South Viet Nam, the demise of Norma Jeane Mortenson, and the enrapturing of many Americans with “Camelot”.

    Lovely photos Churpa.
