Harvey adopted by the youth of Violet Town

4220km completed, day 411

After rain and stops in roadhouses and parking stops, Nathan drove into Violet Town, where he was welcomed with open arms and smiles.

A thunderstorm stopped Frank and Harvey on the road and because of it Violet Town came to be Harvey's home for 2 days, and Annette, Andy, Indigo and over 14 other friends made a night of it for all of us.

We talked of what this walk is about, the importance of Youth Human Rights, and one's own importance and dreams of the future. These young people were a joy to be with. Each individual spoke of their own ambitions, aiming to be mechanics or musicians or lawyers, each dream was different.

It was one of the most inspirational nights for a very long time, and it was a humbling feeling to be welcomed with nothing more than positive thinking and the roots of friendships ahead.

Thank you to the people of the town.
