01.07.after 40 km steep and heavy road we took a truck over the pass due to it was to windy and cold and we had to be in Tiflis on the 8th. by accident we visited a beekeeper and Astrid was explaining me all the details because she is a beekeeper as well. we met a Russian whott teaches
English and German and is on the way to Syria. just in time we crossed the border to Georgia, camping at
an old water power station close to the river. excellent camp fire :-).
