the view

Kazbegi. Ok. I'm not a climber/trekker/hiker/whatever, but well worth it to get to the mountains here. And, hike. Not only will you be out of breath from the walk. It'll take your breath away.

the view, II

When I was a kid, in the 1970s, there used to be a commercial on tv for Dannon yogurt. It went something like this: In the Caucasus, where people live to be around 110 years old, they eat a lot of yogurt.

Ok. I didn't see any Dannon there. I didn't even see any yogurt. But, I did see some really old people, and, well, they looked relatively healthy. In fact, they looked just like I remember from the yogurt commercials.

It must be something about the view and the scenery.

the view, III

The name of the church is Tsminda Sameba Church, or, the more easily pronounced Holy Trinity Church.

    Yoghurt makes you live longer?! Noo....I think it has more to do with the wine, the vodka and the cigarettes! Anyway, happy birthday ;@P

    You have some amazing pictures. I was really upset that we couldn't make it to Kazbegi, but apparently there were complications on the Russian border that made this impossible for us. Great tips!

    If they have a name, does that spare them from the frying pan? Good to see you out walking! ;-]

    Eating under Stalin's watchful eyes must have been a very special experience. A very interesting page!!

    i gave up visiting kazbegi to head to armenia, just to break my arm... i should have stayed in georgia, damn it... there's a vague plan to return and take in azerbaijan too in the not so distant future...

    Love the whole ubiquitous Stalin spectre thing going on....also, fascinating about the St. Nino cross. I got a chill looking at the photos on some of these tips.
