kilometers north of T'bilisi and known for not only its history, but also
the incredible beauty of the countryside. You cannot believe how easy it is
to get to these places. In T'bilisi, you can hire any taxi to take you
outside the city for a predetermined price (always very cheap!). Usually,
you don't have to do this though because numerous Georgians one has met at
work are more than happy to drive you themselves. Sometimes, I feel like I
might be taking advantage of people.
As with most other famous locations in Georgia, this area has been subject
to many invasions and atrocities over the years from invading armies. If
you want to read about the history of this site, here is a link that should
provide you with more details than I could:
I have so many pictures but will send only five this time. I tried to focus
on scenery with these and will send more of building interiors next week.
Please let me know what you think!
