It’s week 46 of Stevie Wander’s year-long journey on the Hippie Trail from 50-years ago. This week we find him in Afghanistan. He enjoys his stay in Kabul. A young woman, Marie, has caught his eye and tickled his fancy. But she’s driving him crazy with her flirting mind games. The wanderer decides to leave Kabul and head north to Mazar-i-Sharif. The greatest hashish in the world is in northern Afghanistan, or so the legend of the story goes. Stevie boards a bus to traverse the primitive rugged terrain on an all-day ride. Night time he arrives at a Mazar Hotel. 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.
