Wanderer Weekly #31 – Afghanistan, Kandahar & Kabul
It’s week 31 of the wandering hippie journey by “Stevie Wander” some fifty years ago. This week we find him visiting Afghanistan. He spends several days in Kandahar then takes a rickety ten-hour bus trip to Kabul. The primitive nature of the Afghani street scene and people is jolting to the senses, like going back in time. Very mood pervading. Stevie Wander pals around with two English blokes while adventuring. He continues exploring the teahouse culture and the hashish is plentiful. Stevie joins in the local custom with the natives. 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.
