Much esteemed guests from Boulder, Colorado who enjoyed our Svaneti tour last year have been dabbling in some Georgian cooking.
The valiant project recreated the world famous ‘Georgian Snickers’ - ‘Churchela’ made from walnut pieces on a string generously dipped in Wine Molasses.
The champion sports food delicacy, rumoured to hold more energy pound for pound than even the most high tech sports supplement lasts for an entire season in the guiding backpack.
We went off to Svaneti on a bike tour. Our new friend Vako driving in his suped up Delica 4x4 van and his bike trailer arrived we loaded up the bikes and drove over to the Hotel. On the way, I enjoyed sitting high up in this crazy vehicle with the tyres making a noise like the Batmobile.
It’s here again; we’ve had a few warnings of its imminent arrival. The harsh winter that grips Tbilisi each year usually comes quite abruptly. My first year here was quite a shock, one day I was wearing a T shirt and strolling around in the late October sun, the next day the temperature had dropped quite dramatically and I was forced to don a jacket and several layers to keep out the biting cold. This year at least we’ve had some warning.
