#36 Driving the Abano Pass in Georgia
Jul 21, 2022 Season 1 Episode 36
Magnus Toren, host

This episode is unusual.
(best with headphones!)

I have been traveling in Georgia for three weeks and I am now in a small town, Oni, close to the border between South Ossetia (many Georgians prefer calling it the Tskhinvali Region),  Russia and Georgia.

Earlier during my visit I drove the road from Akhmeta in Kakheti to Omalo in Tusheti over the notorious Abano pass. This episode is a narration of that drive.

Here is a video that illustrates pretty well how gnarly the road is.

The music intro and outro is a song Shen Alazano (Tushetian Song) performed by Lela Nakeuri & Chveneburebi.  (a wonderful band that I hope will play in the Big Sur mountains one day).

Please
email any comments/suggestions.

THANK YOU!
