Carrying on with the Educational Nomadic Project Laura and I visited La Emilia, where we talked for over 200 kids from the town's public schools. We have been very busy since we are beginning our Argentina-Greenland hitch-hiking trip next week. But we made a little gap in our agenda to reach this town. School teachers told me there had once existed a carpet factory in town. Having walked up and down the Middle East and considering the warmth welcome we recieved in la Emilia I imagined that were there once was a carpet factory there must be hospitality still around...

We were also delighted to meet Alberto, the director of the local Museum of Paleontology, and Alejandro and his girlfriend, local journalists who had helped us to bring the event there.
The Educational Nomadic project is coordinated with the People's Health Movement (PHM) and supported by donations from readers.

Hey there! Thank you for the comment! I've just barely begun to read a little of your story and it's truly amazing. We've a lot of catching up to do! There are so many amazing people you meet on the road and I can't wait for our next adventure. It's always great to meet a fellow hitchhiker. May your rides be many and take you to amazing places. =)

I think it's great you've turned it into an educational experience, keep on thumbing!
