But the European "surface" is not void of topography like a sidewalk. The
North German plain, Carpathians, the Alps, Black Sea, major river corridors
like the Danube, not to mention the Mediterranean shore line certainly
channeled the animals (food) and humans. Pour you bucket of water on a
surface with topography and it flows approximately the same way over the
surface each bucket full.
I don't think anyone has suggested the I people and R people traveled
together on their journeys. into Europe.
