The first time I hitched a bus
So I was with a Polish couple, who I met earlier at Timna Park and we were going back to Eilat. This bus stopped (we were at a bus stop) and guy was on the phone. I approached thinking he stopped for us, which he didn’t (he stopped to talk on the phone). We told him we were going to Eilat, so he decided to take us for free, as he was returning from a trip. Didn’t speak much English, but we still talked about Poland and Israel. Picked up another guy (who was waiting for a bus). I think he was Singaporean (or Taiwanese?) and got turned away at the border for not having a visa to Jordan. Interesting hitch.
