It was a beautiful walk but got longer and longer as the day went on. We didn’t bring enough water and I kept thinking we were close when we weren’t so I didn’t bother treating any stream water. Silly boy. In any case, dehydrated and sore-footed, we’re back in Mestia. A day of rest tomorrow and then back to Tbilisi.
