Wanderer Weekly #40 – Kathmandu

It’s week 40 of Stevie Wander’s year-long journey on the Hippie Trail from 50-years ago. Our intrepid hippie wanderer has arrived at the ultimate hippie haven destination on the globe—Kathmandu, Nepal!  He is terribly exhausted after the grueling journey on a rickety bus along the mountain roads.  But soon he settles in for several weeks of enjoyment.  A Swami tells Stevie his fortune.  There are temples everywhere, even a monkey temple.  The dope scene is incredible with offerings of anything one could imagine, cheap and legal. Stevie receives letters from family back home half a world away in Michigan, USA. Come hear the exciting stories of this weekly 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.
