In addition to the usual "get drunk/get laid" action that seems unavoidable in such
occasion, some very practical topics were addressed, such as:
* Nomadic philosophy
* General survival tricks, whether in the wild or in the urban jungle.
* Much much sharing of hitch-hiking experience. Everyone seemed to have a cool story to tell. Palme d'or goes to Fabrice for the Stevie-Wonder-smile drug-lord.* Friendships were formed or developed. A very important thing for such a loose
society.* Open space sucess !
The Documentary Project===
* One hitchhiker had to go back 40 kilometers to pick up a phone he had left behind in a car. Another hitchhiker almost lost all his luggage because he said good-bye before he picked his luggage from the trunk.
