For such an interesting topic I'm surprised it seems to have been forgotten about. After reading a book about the whole 2 week affair I can say I was thoroughly amused and gladdened at his various travels though it was quite sad that the good will about the trip was lost when the U2 was shot down. One of the more interesting parts of the trip was when the top American Capitalists met with him, trying to convince him they didn't secretly rule the country, even saying that any bill Wall Street proposed was immediately shot down. Khrushchev unsurprisingly didn't believe any of that.

Link of the book I read for those curious, it was a good unbiased read and I encourage you guys pick it up.
