"Upper Svaneti" Mestia by leonik
Mestia Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 87 photos
Little Saba Tamliani, 2 years old. Resident of Latali Village (near Mestia), Upper Svaneti.
Thanks to the lighting, lush green background, sun hat, his expression, I thought this lovable guy (who, by the way, is obsessed with moths) looked every bit "Anne Geddes-worthy".
Horse-riding through the pristine alpine forests of Upper Svaneti was definitely the most amazing experience in my 7-week travels in the region.
With its many stone watch towers and the commanding Caucasus Range, this place would be a fitting tribute to the Lord of the Rings!
This page, if and when completed, will be dedicated to the Tamliani family of Latali Village. (Ewa Sukhari! ey-wah soo kha-ri "Thank You" in Svanuri, the language of the Svans)
Saba's Mom, Megi, is on the right-most.
L-R: Saba's Great-grandmother, Grandmother, and Mom.
Girl in Red: Saba's cousin.
Svanuri's (and Georgian) not the easiest language to pronounce so i'm going to transliterate it to the best of my... more travel advice
