Leave early in a 4-wheel drive for Ushguli. Fabulous autumn colours and splashes of lime green against dark coniferous hills. Our car is passed by endless supporters of the Georgian Dream party – led by Ivanishvili – the richest man in Georgia. They go on to win the election on October 1st. Delicious lunch, in a private house, of home grown vegetables. The fit members of the group stay behind to do a long walk the following day and the rest of us go back to Mestia.
