The story about the stone crosses
A midnight encounter at Tblisi airport
Kazbegi; the invisible Mount Chaukhi
The next day we set off for the tiny village of Juta, got our sleepingbags and cantharelles and hiked to a pretty mountain lodge right at the edge of the Chaukhi valley. The mountains around were completely covered in a big cloud and we spent the cold evening in our sleepingbags, only coming out for Tomek’s wonderful pasta with cantharelles.
