Telling You What's Good

Glimpses of Georgia

Gergeti Trinity Church

No, not where Outkast is from.  The country, in the Caucasus.  The Republic of Georgia, Sakartvelo. One of the most lovely places I’ve ever been, where at almost every head turn something gorgeous and unexpected pops into view, where the people shatter your notions of hospitality with their unending kindness and warmth, and where the food and wine are so good that “moderation” ceases to be in your vocabulary.  Here are some photos for the time being:
