In and above Ushguli, July 2007

Oops - should've uploaded the videos before the manuscript shot! Oh well, never mind.

Top - I shot this 360-degree video panorama in rather a hurry, as the first one I tried, from the top of Mt Lamaria, failed to film after about 5 seconds. So, apologies for the whirlwind tour, which is from near the pass above Ushguli from which the Lentekhi side of Svaneti is visible. It starts and ends with what you can see of Ushguli at the bottom of the frame.

Bottom - candle making. This, using beeswax and cotton, is the traditional Georgian way. The next day some of us took the candles and set off by foot for K'ala, 10 km lower, for the Kvirikoba festival there. More footage to follow.
