Where did Cane go after he killed Able?

In the Torah, seeing through Cain’s deception, as “the voice of [Abel’s] blood is screaming to [God] from the ground”, God curses Cain to wander the earth. Cain is overwhelmed by this and appeals in fear of being killed by other men, and so God places a mark on Cain so that he would not be killed, stating that “whomsoever kills Cain, vengeance shall be upon him sevenfold”. Cain then departs, “to the land wandering”. Early translations instead stated that he departed “to the Land of Nod”, which is generally considered a mistranslation of the Hebrew word Nod, meaning wandering. Despite being cursed to wander Cain is later mentioned as fathering a lineage of children, and founding a city, which he named Enoch after the name of his son.
