Tamars Bridge. Tamar was the princess of Georgia who married a greek adventurer called Jason who sailed to Georgia with some people called the Argonauts looking for the Golden Fleece. Funny because in Georgia they still use sheeps fleeces to get the gold out of the rivers. Anyway, so after that they went and moved south and set themselves up in Media so it goes. We visit ancient Media later on.
The beast on the bridge. It didn't wake up when I went over it. I thought it might do when Hannah went across though - but no.
Then we had to go by cable-car up to the edge of the canyon.
An old soviet cable-car that local people use to get to the shops and that.
Great view of the mine.
Look theres sheep sleeping under the truck - aaw!
After a hot and sweaty walk we finally got to the monastery.
Inside it was atmospheric. The quality of the light and the acoustics were very special.
Gravestones polished by many feet.
Detail of a cat-like face on a pillar.
Check out the natural light!
