Fortunately the Rainy Tuesday was an exception … The weather is rather nice here, 7/8 ° C with a beautiful blue sky. Our hotel, The Mondrian in SoHo is ideally situated. Opening Ceremony’s is less than 100 meters away, we couldn’t have asked for better. We’ve still got jet lag, so we get up at odd times …. 7 am, we are in great shape … A good opportunity to have a square breakfast.

The draft notice meant that he was to serve a tour of duty in Vietnam, designated a rifleman, the basic field position in the Army. After 63 days in Vietnam, he was made a photographer, shooting photographs for the Army and US newspapers, with these instructions from the Colonel: “You are not a combat photographer.
