Panorama introduces the sixth issue of our weekly Sunday Magazine. With each edition, we curate a few works to bring you our world, through international and diverse writers and image makers,  using travel-themed poetry, illustrations, nonfiction, fiction, and photography. This week, we’re pleased to introduce two new voices to you: one of our own emerging writers, Valerie Piro, who writes about Italian burrata in Brooklyn’s Chinatown for our Eaten series; and Tajik photographer Alovaddin Kalanov offers up his images of Tajikistan. We’re also featuring two poems, one by Irish poet Kathleen McCracken, and the other by American poet John Hicks:

“In a remote part of Arizona, we’d come to see spring wild flowers:
lupine, ocotillo, paint brush. She must have seen
us coming, pulling a cloud of red dust
across a distant rise, long before the tires
crunched to a halt on the decomposed granite
roadway as the flock flowed out of a dry wash
and across our road.”

This reminds us that travel, while it is about moving, is also about stopping. Enjoy our current issue! Our next quarterly issue comes out on December 4th.

Trekking in the Pamir and Zarafshan Mountains
Alovaddin Kalonov


The Pamir is another planet, even if you live in Tajikistan. If you have ever been there then you can say that you know Tajikistan well. The same is true with Zarafshan. In travelling and trekking to these regions I discovered a new part of my country.
