Wednesday September 26th

Gelati Monastery outside Kutaisi has a real feeling of completeness. There is a huge mosaic/frescoe of Our Lady. I sketch the Bell tower. Every day we have the most enormous lunches (today in Zugdidi) and dinners – always tomatoes and cucumbers and soup and mostly cheesy bread, meat and pates made with walnuts and beetroot. Walk round the Dadiani Palace before getting in the bus for a long drive to Mestia in Svaneti.
