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.

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.

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.
