Wanderer Weekly #5: Entry into Morocco
The journey continues with part 2 and part 3 of Week #5 of the yearlong wandering adventure. We pick up the story at the Rock of Gibraltar facing the shores of Africa. Our dedicated traveler faces a hippie’s worst nightmare, getting his hair cut off. After the brutal clipping Stevie enters Morocco. The goal is to get to Casablanca. Major culture shock to the system—1st experience with Islamic society. Stevie maps out his journey while remembering 50 years ago—”getting high oh my, getting high as a kite on the abundant hashish!”
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.
