- Georgia is exotic, ranging from the sophistication and night life and jazz in Tbilisi, to the simplicity of the over-river wooden built latrines in the mountains.
Ushgali was my highlight of the trip, way up in the mountains. Villages of great simplicity, valley sides grazed by docile cattle and horses, defensive towers pointing skywards, narrow footpaths to share with the shaggy dogs and cattle, and fresh real milk.
Our excellent bus driver drove carefully on the narrow winding roads through the mountains where there were landslides one side, and a precipice down to the deep valley and gushing river below on the other side.
The service provided by our tour leader was excellent. When he had to make new arrangements in one place for more sophisticated accommodation for some of us, he was very efficient, and at all times kept his good humour.
