Wanderer Weekly #41 – Kathmandu – Part 2
It’s week 41 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! This is his second week in Nepal. He settles in and continues to explore the area with a short bus trip to a neighboring town, Dhulikhel. He reads a letter he wrote to his family at the time. Hippies from around the world gather in Nepal because of the loose “laws” on prescription drugs and the all-pervading mind-expanding drug culture. Come hear the exciting stories of this once-in-a-lifetime 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.
