What a trip! Although I had planned to send more photos of 'Ananuri' this
week, I just couldn't wait to forward these pictures! Last weekend, I went
with some of my Georgian friends to a site in T'bilisi I had somehow managed
to overlook. We took a short taxi ride to see 'Sameba (Trinity) Cathedral.'
This cathedral is reputedly the biggest Orthodox church in the world and was
certainly impressive. I really could have stayed there all day, but the
delicious Georgian food and wine were calling. Unfortunately, all good
things must come to an end.

Now, for the pictures:
#1 I had to stand way back to get this one!
#2 The dome from inside
#3 Interior adornment
#4 I felt strange about taking this picture but everyone seemed to be doing
it. Anyway, I was told seven couples were getting married simultaneously!
#5 Another interior shot
As always, feedback is appreciated! Russ
