So do you really eat the head or is it just a symbolic inclusion on in the meal? All I can say is, well, yuck.
You have a very intersting post today - great pics!

I had a hard enough time posting to the blog at all in Ushguli, & wasn't able to catch many of the comments. Sorry...
"Gamarjoba" in Svan is "Khocha ladegh" and "Rogor xar" is magwart xari". Hope this helps - get a native speaker to help with pronunciation!
