Walking in the Caucasus: Georgia
Peter Nasmyth (Author)
Remarkably, Georgia - no larger than Switzerland - ranks in the world's top twelve countries for geographical diversity. It contains the heart of the

But this walker's paradise remains virtually undiscovered. Peter Nasmyth has now provided the first
comprehensive walker's guide, including birds, flora and fauna, to Europe's most diverse landscape. The book
contains clear directions, excellent maps, GPS references, local history/contacts and a superb selection of colour photographs.

Cuisine - Georgian Cooking
Georgians make khachapuri. It does resemble pizza but, unlike in Italy, khachapuri is baked by women and
best of all, by our grandmothers.
Ajika, tqemali, and satsebeli are what the Georgians, who have gone far away abroad, miss most. For
Westerners, these untranslatable words and sauces that other people have never heard of are probably
most similar to ketchup. A carton full of bottles of ajika and tqemali is the most common package to be sent from home to a Georgian who lives abroad.
In Georgia, vine was a cultivated plant as early as 7,000 years ago and the name of wine was spread to
Europe and the rest of the world precisely from the Georgian word ghvino denominating this wonderful liquid.
There is no place on Earth where so many varieties of vine -- about 700 -- thrive in a country with such a small territory.
