Friday's Face-Bakuriani, Georgia

Bakuriani is a small town at the base of a ski area. I took the train from Borjomi to Bakuriani as a day trip just to enjoy the view on the mountains from the train. At the train station in Bakuriani there were these carriages to taxi people to the center of the small town. I just made the five minute walk but took this picture of one of the drivers as he past me by.

Friday's Face-Batumi, Georgia

Batumi is on the coast of the Black Sea close to the border between Georgia and Turkey. The beach is not a sand beach but made up of a lot of stones. I did see sand in the sport fields next to the beach where this picture is from. When I first saw the sports field I expected to see the men playing soccer(football) but was surprised to see rugby being played. I enjoyed standing around and watching a bit of the action.

Friday's Face-Kazbegi, Georgia

This is one of my drinking buddies in Kazbegi. He was showing me that you are suppose to drink out of the ram's horn. I didn't use the horn but have no idea why I didn't now. We enjoyed a number of beers together even without being able to understand a word either of said to each other.



The following is of mount Kazbegi and it was taken in front of the guesthouse I said in and met my drinking buddies.

Tusheti

I have tried to do something new for me to show how I spent 4 days in the village of lower Omalo in Tusheti.

The ride up the 4 wheel drive road to get to Tusheti was a fun experience but not for anyone that is scared of heights. The area is a national park in Georgia and is really only inhabited in the summer. The village behind me in the video is Shenaqo. Sorry the video does not capture the snow cover mountains in the distance and also for the abrupt ending to the video but still hope you enjoy.
