Re-blog Saturday – Time ticks away in Georgia
|Inside the church at Motsameta|
|Valley at Motsameta.|
Just a small church perched above a raging river and below snow capped hills. It was a 20 minute walk from the main road, which would be awesome – in sunshine. But the low clouds in the valley still made it quite a beautiful place to visit.

Back in Kutaisi I enjoyed wifi at McDonald’s before it disappeared. Ahh Georgia… reliable electricity? What was that again? The weather remained miserable and it took me two hours to dry out. I did enjoy my hot hotel room though and something a little different from the beans and borscht I get at home. No problems though – the food is great and plentiful with my host family, no cause to complain, I have had awesome hospitality here.

It’s hard to believe my time is running out. I realise that I have become pretty close with my host family. Now that winter is upon us the downstairs with the fire is much warmer than my room with its little heater. But I am surviving most nights warm enough, however Monday night the power was down (as is often the fashion) and things weren’t so warm.
Time is almost up not just for Georgia but for the whole Trip 2011. A couple of weeks back I went to a wedding too so been able to enjoy some of the culture here.
