Paul Salopek arrives in India

Milestone 55: Leaving Lahore from Out of Eden Walk on Vimeo.

Milestone 55 features Paul’s interview with the first person he meets when he arrives at milestone 55 in India, near Amritsar. You can read this story on this LINK.

An excerpt:

I met my new walking partner, the Indian nature photographer Arati Kumar Rao, at the militarized India-Pakistan border, and we walked almost 15 miles along the Grand Trunk Road to Amritsar. Amritsar is the spiritual capital of the Sikhs. Arati marched without complaint through her blisters on the boiling tarmac. When I offered to carry her pack, she nearly karate-chopped me in the neck.
