51 years ago. It looked pleasant enough without much diversity or the technology we have now.

I agree. I probably would have gotten along there very well without a problem. No one would have looked twice at the dago walking down the street. LOL 1 Nowadays, I think someone like me would create more mixed feelings because the locals already feel cultural pressure and they wouldn't be sure what side I'm on. I'm seeing that play out here in the US.
