Lirhi, Ushguli, Svaneti, Georgia

Lirhi is a late-winter festival which I've now attended twice in a row.  First, a "tower" of snow is built.  Then one of the young men who was involved in this must plant a cross on its top, all the while getting pelted with shovelfuls of snow.  There's more to come from the cold, windy and snowy day which Lirhi gave us this year - lots of good fun, it was, in spite of the weather.
