It’s week 29 of the wandering hippie journey by “Stevie Wander” some fifty years ago. This week we find him traveling across Turkey and Iran to the doorstep of Afghanistan. From a grueling three-day train trip through Turkey to the strangeness of entering Iran, which is a very different culture from Turkey and Arabia. Stevie arrives in Mashad, Iran at the time of a holy pilgrimage as he witnesses the powerful stirrings of spirituality in the Farsi-speaking Persian culture. Come hear more about this once-in-a-lifetime adventure on the Hippie Trail.
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.
