First Tusheti hike turned out pretty ambitious. We walked most of the day, exploring some tiny village which boasted a population of 3 inhabitants and ten times as many houses. We also came across plenty of hungry sheepdogs vociferously guarding their charges, as well as, masked horsemen. We later learned that Caucasus tradition of stealing brides might still be alive and kicking around these parts. In all, an exciting and excellent start to our mountains adventure.
