Walking the Silk Road: PBS NewsHour Clip

Studying the Silk Roads?

Here's an interesting clip from the PBS NewsHour about Paul Salopeek's walking tour of the original Silk Road.

Salopeek is a journalist who is on the fourth year of a walking tour around the world.

The interview reminds us of the importance of the Silk Roads in transporting goods and ideas and also of the unforgiving topography of the deserts and mountains  that made up much of the Silk Roads.

I think your posts are very useful, keep it up!
To promote the culture and at the same time learn English I recommend the videos of World Ahoy. Check out the channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwFhxWXKpF2SVZZOXXOOOgA
