Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first human in space (link to youTube), tells how, after he parachuted to Earth from his capsule, on April 12, 1961 (I was 5 weeks old), the first people he met were a farmer and her daughter:
"When they saw me in my space suit and the parachute dragging alongside as I walked, they started to back away in fear. I told them, don't be afraid, I am a Soviet like you, who has descended from space and I must find a telephone to call Moscow!"
