From the article:

"Over the next seven years, journalist Paul Salopek will retrace, on foot, the path our human ancestors followed out of Africa and across the world, ending at the southern tip of South America. Along the route, Paul will report on the stories he encounters and share his experiences with students around the world."

What an immense yet gratifying trek this must be for him.

Interesting to see the route he is proposing to follow. Difficult to know how closely that maps the route of the earliest migrations.

I made a donation to it. Not because this project is going to tell us anything we don't already know, rather, because this is the sort of educational message our youth needs to see their adult leaders offering them - that this is the most honest and factual story of life and human existence the world and universe presents us with. Great idea!

Thanks, Tabby!

Day 1401

4600 Miles!

He's reached Uzbekistan now. I wonder how many pairs of shoes he's gone through!

I'm impressed both at his endurance and, to be honest, his survival. How he plans to walk unscathed through America beats me.
