Exploring Georgia: Views from an Afternoon Jog

by Kenneth Monette, Greenheart Travel Teach Abroad Participant in Georgia

Made it to the top of the village of Surami in Georgia, once again. Running uphill is definitely a struggle for me, especially on the rocky paths and all the roads with numerous potholes. But now I can have some of that great bread, cheese and vino without feeling guilty tonight (and tonight we have homemade red on the table, YUM!).


I spot a woman filling bottles with mineral water; there are running fountains everywhere in the village of Surami. It’s great to stop and drink from them during my run.


It’s not all nice in the villages. Major highways are great, but most of the village roads are really bad with major potholes or just rocks, dirt and mud. Walking and running is a challenge, and people and cars zig-zag everywhere to avoid the large potholes, rocks, etc. It is quite challenging.


Gotta watch out for the cows, they are everywhere…


No matter I much I run I’ll never lose my gut with all this really good homemade bread in the house, it’s irresistible.
