Hidden, what kinds of tours?
This morning we tore apart our family room because last night there was a huge spider we couldn't catch. But now room is clean and furniture rearranged. Waiting for my parents to come by, they are now home from their month camping in Myrtle Beach.
When it comes to spiders, yuge is in the eye of the beholder. I just squashed a yuge spider that was in the garage with one of my pinkies. It was yuge, I tell ya!
Amazing to see all that and think of Noah and his sons coming off the Ark starting it all over again.I saw the Caucasus mountains from afar. Faint but you can see the outlines where cloud banks sit. It's endless and runs through many countries. Our tour guide said that beyond is Russia.
It's probably right around here that Noah and his sons lived before humanity moved eastward to Shinar about a hundred years later. Also saw a a traditional winery where grapes were tread on a canoe-like log and stored in jars underground where there's very small opening tightly shut to allow fermentation. Georgians think their winery tradition is almost 8,000 years but we know it's probably only around 5,000 to 6,000 years if we based on Biblical chronology and assuming wine-making really did start here.

Hope you are having a nice trip enjoying all the different places!That's what i kept thinking during the tour. As we passed through endless mountain ranges and gorges today I imagined how people and their tribes spread out from Babel.
We had a very long today. Started out from Tbilisi at 9am and reached hotel at 9pm. What a day. Kind of disappointing that we travelled about an hour a half to every destination but only spent around 30mins each and basically just to take pictures.
We visited the Ananuri Fortress, the Gudauri resort, the Gergeti Palace and had a nice view of the Kazbegi Mountain. There wasn't much snow except on the peaks. It was so close to Russia only about 10km. And there's a long line of trucks headed to Russia. There's an alternate route being constructed specifically for trucks so they don't share the same highway with tourists and guess who's constructing it - a Chinese company.
Tomorrow we're headed to Mshketa (meshech? The origin of the mushki tribe that peopled Moscow, Russia?) Also is Tbilisi where I'm staying at the original place of the inhabitants of Tobolsk, Russia? Lots of questions as you explore these places.
Hope you are having a nice trip enjoying all the different places!
That battery is super important to be in tip top shape before winter. (I come from plug in territory as you know) and battery health is everything in winter.I took my Escape in because the auto stop/start wasn't restarting every once in a while. They called me later and told me it was the battery and that that wasn't covered under warranty. I told them They'd just put a new battery in for me several months ago. WARRANTY. It pays to keep good records. Thing is, the battery that came with this new car was poor from the getgo. I'd complain about it everytime I took the vehicle in for any kind of service and they'd tell me it passed their tests. I finally replace it when it's 4 years old and all of the electrical issues I was having went away. The new battery was definitely a good one. Then the vehicle sat on their lot for an entire month waiting for a small job to get done (they're short help like everyone else). I was livid because my new battery surely was going to be affected by draining during that time. Once a car wet battery drains overly much it'll start to degrade. I was happy to get a new battery today but I don't think there was much wrong with the one that was in the car. Anyway, hope the issue I brought it in for is resolved. Because of the car service, I didn't have a chance to run until the afternoon when it had warmed up to a balmy 30 degrees or so...
