Hitchhiking in the Middle East




It took me less than two minutes to hitch a ride in Jerash, Jordan. Plus, first time, three cars stopped for us.

Everybody is white in Europe. On average I waited 90 minutes.

People say Arabs are dangerous, terrorists, mean people. Though I’ve been astonished at all the nice people here.

I’ve been offered free food on multiple occasions, and the one English word everybody knows is “welcome.”

Thank you American media for subverting my expectations so I could come here and be pleasantly surprised.
