Hawaii farewell dinner
Hawaii farewell dinner

Our farewell to those incredible days in Hawaii. Best of all, during dinner I heard stories of those who lived the moment of man stepping on the moon. Klaus was NASA's chief scientist, responsible for analyzing the samples of the lunar soil. He met astronauts, like Neil Armstrong, the first man to step on our natural satellite. Honolulu - HI - USA
