Happy New Year!

The photos are from Ushguli, Svaneti, from a few weeks ago; Lali & I spent the New Year with her parents in Kakheti, in the east. Oh well, so photos & writing don't match so far, whatever. We had a great time - arrived on clean roads, left 3 days later in a lot of snow, driving carefully to get home to Tbilisi safely. We passed several vehicles whose owners hadn't been so slow on the road; and saw a near-crash of a 4x4 which had just passed us half a minute before, fishtailed, got itself into a 360-degree-spin and just about met an oncoming car. Never a dull moment!

The photos - a huge piece of ice from the always-running outdoor faucet; details, held up by Anzor, and another piece of ice used as a crown by Princess Lana.
