Salopek Enters Azerbaijan with a Mountaineer/Dog Whisperer

Out of Eden Expedition

Journalist Saloped Makes it into Azerbaijan

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Paul Salopek, on a 7-year walking journey to follow the worldwide path of human-kind’s migration out of the African Rift Valley 60,000 years ago, has now entered Azerbaijan from Georgia.  He always has a walking partner, and this time it’s Azeri Rufat Gojayev, a renowned mountaineer and energetic walker who also seems to have a talent for communicating with and pacifying dogs (and cats).

The journey is best followed by the Out of Eden homepage and Salopek’s latest articles are more specifically here.
