Paul Salopek/Out of Eden

The River-Lands of Northern India

Date: December 17, 2018
Approximate GPS Location: (26.09°N, 78.47°E)

Salopek has continued to make his way through Madhya Pradesh, crisscrossing the Sindh, the Betwa and the Ken rivers, and observing everyday life for the rural communities.

Salopek and his walking partners have been fuelling themselves with cheap snacks. He's become particularly fond of Gujiya, doughy sweets that can be purchased from roadside vendors.

The sugary snacks should help Salopek make it through the vast river-lands of Northern India as he inches ever onwards towards Bangladesh.
