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.
