I noticed this essay on Facebook today: Paul Salopek’s most recent musings on his walk from the Rift Valley to Tierra del Fuego.
Paul Salopek is on an amazing walk: from east Africa to the southern tip of South America. It’s only going to take nine years. He was interviewed this week on The Current about his experiences. The interview is here; one of his essays about walking, “A Stroll Around the World,” is here. Both the interview and the essay are worth a look.
