|I hitched a few times to and from beach on our day off. Found out that locals were wary of hippies who were causing some trouble. So we were advised to carry a sign that said
"Peace Corps". The ones who picked us up always seemed to have guessed that, anyway. However, it always seemed that hippies were the main
topic of conversation. |

side of the road. Cross-culture in action.
