The view from the crowd as the motorcade passes. In addition to flower petals, Clint Hill, a Secret Service agent in charge of security, recalls that occasionally a "whole damn bouquet" would come flying at the car. "I'd have to rise out of my seat to fend it off so it didn't knock her in the head."

Before visiting Pakistan, Jacqueline Kennedy also made a tour of India, where this baby elephant was paraded in front of her. Clint Hill says that when the first lady reached out to touch the elephant, the animal "reacted as if it were being tickled, wrapping its stubble-covered trunk around her hand."

At the end of the ceremonies at the cattle fair, President Khan gifted Mrs. Kennedy this horse, named Sardar. The horse was later transported back to the United States -- skipping quarantine procedures after the first lady asked her husband to intervene on its behalf.

First lady Jacqueline Kennedy and her sister, Lee Radziwill, meet camel driver Bashir Ahmad. Ahmad had formed a friendship with U.S. Vice President Lyndon Johnson the year before after Johnson stopped to shake the camel driver's hand on his own trip to Pakistan. After Johnson casually invited Bashir to "come see me sometime," Bashir accepted the invitation. He became a media spectacle after he traveled to the United States to meet with Johnson and the Kennedys.

The first lady visits the Khyber Pass, near the Pakistan-Afghan border. During this outing, Clint Hill says tribesmen intended to "sacrifice" a lamb in front of the animal-loving first lady as a sign of respect. Hill intervened and ordered a colleague to "guard that lamb with your life" until Kennedy had left.
