Marching Back to Mestia

Pretty yellow weeds

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.

The photo at top is a typical Svaneti village with the dueling peaks of Ushba in the background.

Farm people doing the farming. The person in back was pretending to be a scarecrow in an effort to get out of hoe duties.
