    Horse drawn cart

    In the villages, horse drawn carts are still widely used. April is not the best time for field works and I did not see any. However, I have noticed that the fields that had been ploughed had no straight lines like when a tractor has been used; I feel that horse drawn plough must be still used in some parts of the country.

    I have found not far from Sighnaghi this School warning road sign. That will be one more for my collection that has now almost 140 photos. I have not put them on line as a whole yet but should do it soon elsewhere than on Vt as it does not fit with the structure of VT.

    I have tried to shoot a few views of the villages that we drove through. Most houses were built on a square pattern, on two levels. Most of them had on one or on two sides a wide covered balcony. Most of them were not very old and were not of the wooden traditional type displayed at the museum in Tbilisi

    from their own backyards

    Early morning locals arrange their merchandise on their doorsteps and on the ground-floor windows – in fact, the products they sell are mainly vegetables, fruits, wine, milk, yoghurt, cheese and meat from their own backyards. And can assure you that they are delicious.

    Hope this custom will last, though I’m not sure how long until the only yoghurt on sale would be Danone…..
