Hello from the road less traveled!
I’m in the middle of a six week journey through Georgia, Armenia, and Nagorno-Karabakh so won’t indulge you in my usual plethora of stories about dance, travel, writing, and inspiration.
But I will share some current snippets of our adventure so far:
Hiking is top notch in the Caucasus Mountains on the Russian & Azerbaijan borders. The food so tasty and homemade. This is the reason we need to climb high up to glaciers and boulder hop in river canyons. Otherwise, we shall return home the shape of butterballs!
I’ll get around to weaving the deeper stories when I’ve unpacked my bag and my mind and body have landed back in California. Below are a few photos to give a sense, and a taste, of this textured country.
Here is a fun story written about an experience we had on a high mountain pass in Armenia— Armenian Caravanserai Dog. Read my other story about this region: Adventuring to Parts Unknown—Armenia, Georgia, and Karabakh. If you love dance, watch this upbeat dance video filmed in Georgia featuring the Georgian National Ballet.
