We're on the Georgian Military Highway passing through the Great Caucasus Mountains. This is the Zhinvali Reservoir-
Our final destination for the day is Kazbegi, now known as Stepantsminda. It's a small town at 1750 m, 15 km from the Russian border. The Tsminda Sameba Church is 6.4 km up a mountain and is on tomorrow's agenda, via taxi I hope!
Our first stop was the Fortress of Ananuri which dates from the 16th-17th centuries, a time of feudal disunity in Georgia.
Marianne is just leaving the church. I love the detail around the door-
There are many frescoes inside the church-
Here is the altar-
We saw some fantastic scenery during today's drive-
A bee keeper-
Herds seem to run wild-
A man using a scythe to cut the hay in his front yard-
We stopped at a look-out-
It was very nicely decorated-
And this was the view-
You look SKINNY!ReplyDelete
Please tell my mum (Marianne) to get into more pictures - this is the first I've seen of her in a month!ReplyDelete
