It’s week 45 of Stevie Wander’s year-long journey on the Hippie Trail from 50-years ago. This week we find him on the move heading West. He boards a train in Delhi toward the Pakistani border. He must play a few songs on his flute before the border guard gives him permission to cross. He travels from Pakistan towards Afghanistan. Stevie is now inappropriate in his scanty Indian garb, back in Muslim territory. His rubber Indian sandals break. He is barefoot in the rough streets of Kabul. The locals give him a hard time. After a dramatic first night in Afghanistan, Stevie settles down at the Hindukush Hotel. Life is a challenge for a barefoot lone traveler, however he is engaged by the sexy, high energy Marie. Come hear more of 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.
