Salopek Enters Islamabad; Silk Road Chapter Comes to End

Date: February 16, 2018
Approximate GPS Location: (33.56°N, 72.95°E)

Salopek says his 'Silk Road' days are over as he enters Pakistan's capital, Islamabad. This is even as he visits 2000 year old Greece-inspired Bactrian/Kushan ruins in the city of Taxila. His next chapter? What he calls the 'Riverlands' of northeast Pakistan and India. With guide Khan he also tried the magical health elixir of sea buckthorn and wrote about it.
