It’s week 47 of Stevie Wander’s year-long journey on the Hippie Trail from 50-years ago. This week we find him in northern Afghanistan. He enjoys his stay in Mazar-i-Sharif. He finds it to be a very strange town with much “cold war” intrigue. The wanderer heads off to the nearby ancient city of Balkh. He takes a harrowing trip out in the desert by foot with a friend to purchase some hashish from the locals. Back in Kabul he meets up with Marie for some final romance before departing for the road. 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.
