Wanderer Weekly #30 – Iran Into Afghanistan

It’s week 30 of the wandering hippie journey by “Stevie Wander” some fifty years ago.  This week we find him traveling from Iran to Afghanistan.  After spending the night at the Iranian / Afghan border Stevie crosses into Afghanistan on an old rickety bus.  He explores the teahouse culture in Herat.  Hookahs and hashish are plentiful.  Stevie joins in the local custom with the natives.  Then the bus heads southward avoiding the Hindu Kush Mountains to Kandahar.  Come hear more about the 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.
