The Virtual “Hippie Hop”

Years ago during the heyday of the "Summer of Love" in the Haight-Ashbury section of San Francisco Greyhound Bus actually put together a tour called the "Hippie Hop" which wound its’ way amongst the hippies and hippie wannabes of the Hashbury like some kind of deranged urban safari for the Wonderbread crowd. You can still get a feel for what the Hashbury of San Francisco, Vancouver and the Yorkville region of Toronto (Canada’s own hippie districts) looked like by checking out the incredible videos at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation site Hippie Society: The Youth Rebellion. It’s all quite surreal yet undeniably groovy man. Check it out.
