Faces of the World

Journalist Paul Salopek is currently on a 21,000-mile walk around the world. His Out of Eden walk is roughly tracing the footsteps of the very first human beings who migrated out of Africa in the stone-age to eventually populate the whole world.

During his multiyear walk Paul is documenting his journey and reporting on the stories of the people he meets. You can learn more about Paul's huge trek, view a map of his route and read his account of the journey on National Geographic's Out of Eden. Out of Eden includes video, audio and text about the people and places encountered on the walk. It also features an interactive Journey map, which allows you to access all the stories and media from each stage of the Out of Eden expedition.

The National Geographic has also published another interactive map of the Out of Eden journey. The Out of Eden: Milestone map provides a fascinating insight into the people that Paul encounters on his journey. Every one hundred miles Paul stops the first person he meets and asks them three questions:

Who are you?
Where do you come from?
Where are you going?

The Milestone map introduces us to the people Paul has interviewed every 100 miles. It includes a 360 degree panoramic photo of the milestone location, a photo of the person interviewed and their answers to the three questions.
