Wanderer Weekly #38 – Mandi-Delhi-Agra, India
It’s week 38 of the intrepid journey of the wandering hippie, “Stevie Wander”, exactly fifty years ago. This week we find him in northern India in the town of Mandi. He heads south on a bus with his traveling companions to the town of Chandigarh. Then a train ride down to Delhi. They spend a couple days in New Delhi. Over-population everywhere. Pockets of extreme poverty. Then the guys take a train from Delhi down to Agra where they ready themselves for a tour of the fabulous Taj Mahal. Come hear more about this once-in-a-lifetime adventure in India, while 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.
