These absurd photos of young travelers on the ‘Hippie Trail’ raise a lot of questions
Rian Dundon

There is nothing “absurd” about the photos. Unless they have been photo edited in some manner (unlikely at the time) they are an untouched depiction of events that took place. The absurdity is the conjunction of inauthentic young and naïve youth with poor, but real people who have to face life as it is with little hope for the future.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
