Paul Salopek/Out of Eden

Salopek Halted in Mandalay

Date: March 30, 2020
Approximate GPS Location: (21.96°N, 96.08°E)

For the last few weeks, Salopek has made steady progress along the Irrawaddy towards Mandalay. On March 18, he arrived in the city just as the world began to impose travel restrictions and isolation protocols.

The spread of COVID-19 will halt his progress, at least for now. He is taking self-isolation as an opportunity to work on a book and will continue to produce stories relating to his Out of Eden trek so far.
