HomeTransportation Hitching If you put out your thumb, someone may give you a lift. Confusion may arise as to whether payment is required or not. The fact is just give the person a sum of money (you can try to compare it with lower-class buses prices), and if they insist to refuse then you can give them a cigarette or just share what you've got. On the backroads where public transport is rare, hitching may be the only alternative to walking, and passing motorists or trucks are often willing to help.
Always bear in mind, travelers who decide to hitch should understand that they are taking a small but potentially serious risk. People who do choose to hitch will be safer if they travel in pairs and let someone know where they are planning to go. But hey, which part in this life doesn't have potentially serious risks? Give it a shot!
