Not a hitchhiker’s guide, only the two or three things about my hitchhiking.
﹣記得一個60多歲高呼 Rock & Roll never dies 的司機大談他的音樂，但更多喜愛本土民謠音樂和流行的 Reggaeton 的司機
﹣不知道截了幾趟車，遇上過多少人，只知 99% 是好人，一次衰人
– To most drivers, I was only a passerby but still, I have become friend with some of them
– Some drivers drove crazily fast, around 160km/h. They made 500km in 3 hours. But there’s also sometimes, some trucks went super slow and took a whole day to go 200km.
– Some drivers were very talkative. They’re curious about everything of you and also told you a lot about themselves.
– They can be a very good guide too, gave you a lot of information, stopped for you to take good pictures, even drove out of their original route just to bring you to see more.
– Some were pretty quiet. They didn’t need a companion but just doing you a good favor.
– Most of the time they were male drivers, but my first hitchhiking driver was a female. She already picked up another guy before me on that journey.
– one driver who’s about 60 and loves rock & roll and talked a lot about music but also many drivers who only love local folklore music or the very popular Reggaeton.
– I did 2 times buses, 1 time tour bus, 1 time taxi, 1 time motorbike, 1 time ambulance, uncountable times of trucks, mini trucks and private cars.
– The maximum times of hitchhiking I did in one day was 8.
– Had sat at the rear of an open deck mini truck, hid inside a car trunk like human trafficking, and slept on the bunk bed of a big truck
– I don’t know how many cars I hitchhiked and how many people I met, 99% were good people, only 1 unlucky time.
