Photo Friday from Georgia

The Republic of Georgia is not only one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but one full of rich tradition, hospitable hosts and amazing food and wine. Our teachers working in this fascinating country have shared photos from their adventures abroad.

In the Republic of Georgia, mandarins, or “mandarini”, are a very productive crop. My host family in the village of Tsetskhlauri (near the Black Sea) has mandarin and orange trees filling their garden. When the crop was ripe, I donned a few sweaters, grabbed a shears, and enjoyed a day of harvesting mandarins while singing songs with my host family.

This photo was taken during a trek through the forest in Borjomi. We knew it was quite a walk to the hot springs in Borjomi, but we weren’t quite expecting to cross such a precarious bridge along the way.

On top of the world in Georgia. On a weekend trip to Sighnaghi, the City of Love, we climbed up the wall of an old fortress where we could see miles of the beautiful Kakhetian countryside.

This is a photo of the Monastery in the Clouds. My school in the Republic of Georgia took me and some of my fellow teachers and students on day trips. We visited the area near this monastery.
