It’s week 24 of the yearlong adventure for intrepid hippie Stevie Wander as he journeys through the ancient majestic environs of Jerusalem. He makes the holy rounds to the Wailing Wall, Temple Mount, and the Dome of the Rock. He comes in contact with a nun preaching love, Evangelical Christians, and an endless stream of people from all over the globe. He walks through the old city as well as the new city on the outskirts. Music and spirituality are everywhere. After a five-day sojourn in Jerusalem, Stevie heads north hitchhiking to the Kibbutz for a couple days and nights of hanging out and partying with his friends before it’s off to the road. Come and enjoy the adventure!
Co-author Steve Reifman celebrates the 50th anniversary of the ultimate hippy trail journey. His adventure, the inspiration for the book Wanderer co-written with F.T. Burke, took him across four continents through 26 countries in 1970-1971. Now, on the Golden Anniversary of his adventure, Steve Reifman – or “Stevie Wander,” as he likes to be called – tells the true tales behind the story.
