This reminds me of Michael Wood’s “In the footsteps of Alexander the Great,” except far grander in its spatial, cultural and temporal scope. In addition to introducing us to the modern people along the way, and their concerns, I hope that he finds a way to introduce us to the archaeological record as well: an overview of what we know about the lives of the people that made the migration, and what we don’t know or can’t agree upon about them. But ost of all, I hope that he publishes in installments (even if he publishes a capstone edition later), so that I don’t have to wait so long to begin to know our neighbors more intimately.

Oh, that is beautiful.

This whole project is beautiful. I’m so glad to have read this post this morning. What a remarkable thing this is. I can’t wait to read the reports from the road.

I am inspired and look forward to the writings. Walking is good for the soul, the spirit and the body – “keep it real”.

Last year I went on a 130k walk from a place called Vumba to Nyanga, just to enjoy life at a slower place and also to take a step back from the pressure of the work I do here in Zimbabwe. http://www.kubatana.net/docs/artcul/atwood_no_mean_feet_111025.pdf
Hi from Harare, Bev
