The Moon Landing from Lima, Peru

STORY BY: Juan Pedro Unger
YEAR: 1969
LOCATION: Lima, Peru

Juan Pedro recollects the moon landing when he was 5 years old in Lima, Peru. His parents woke all of their children and hurried them to the living room, saying, "You have to see this!" Every now and then, due to an earthquake, the children were awakened in the night. This time, they joined some aunts and uncles to stand near the black and white TV to watch. The images were blurry but the memory is clear. He thanks his parents for the memory and we thank you, Juan Pedro, for sharing.
