KO, I won't bore you with any more cracked paint photos - at the moment.
These are from Mravaldzali, claiming to be Europe's 2nd highest village at over 1600 m above sea level - but surely K'ala, near Ushguli, is higher than this? I don't know. Anyway, it's the place from which Lali's family originates, and sure enough, the very first people we met there were relatives of hers. Here she is washing dishes against the village's spectacular Caucasus backdrop, with a couple of other nearby scenes thrown in, the bottom one being of a scarecrow and clay kvevri (wine container).
