These are the same people who, in ages past, would have trekked to Timbuktu, journeyed to mysterious Punt for Pharaoh Hatshepsut, or quested for mythical Leng and Hyperborea. Urban explorers, viewed by some as modern successors to these ancient travelers, plumb the mysteries found in the out-of-the-way places overlooked …
