Stone bridge connects the two sides helpfully Valley. In Abkhazia a special culture of food, it should be a lot of crazy and it is delicious. Delicious kebabs, wine, unique local food, hominy for example. About local people want to be treated separately, a more hospitable and friendly, I do not met. One story with a coin for luck which is only by lifting a cup of aromatic coffee, I saw a small coin, surprise, I decided to ask the waitress where she is. With a smile, the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci on the face, it told about the long tradition of giving guests a little bit of luck in the form of coins.
Triumph over – we must go home. Rain drumming softly on the window the car. The nature of the mountain in weather like this all the more charming. White haze slowly but surely down the road, gray clouds and the dark green trees add mystery. Standing close to the warm side of the sisters, asleep under a lullaby of nature. New Athos takes first place in the list of most beautiful areas of Abkhazia. The city is rich in historical monuments: New Athos Cave (the second largest in the world), Athos Orthodox monastery, the church of St. Simon Kanonita, Genoese Tower and much more.
K Unfortunately, the day is short for the entire study, so we limited ourselves to a visit to the caves and monastery. These impressions will last until your next visit to Abkhazia. These caves, I have not seen, we just drove 10 minutes to small train deep into the mountains, and then went out to the observation deck, you find yourself in the magic world of gnomes and freezes on such a scale, depth, altitude and latitude! As the cave and the monastery did not leave anyone indifferent. All skill decorated with frescoes, icons, walls, ceilings, domes and columns. Saints are looking at you as if alive, with a slight reproach, they say, where are you running, do not hurry up, sit down, think about it. The first half day visit to Sukhumi monkey shone nursery. It is with mixed feelings. I read that during the Soviet Union, this kennel has secured enough scientific division. But now it looks so awful because of lack of material. Obviously not passed in vain, and the recent past – the military events. However, I thought, monkey do not lose heart. You should not be regarded as a raven and a number of the cells. Not only did my bag of corn chopsticks quickly moved into the cell, so still I heard the monkey laughter. They laughed at my absent-mindedness. Never underestimate the enemy! J The second part of the day dedicate fees. Sadly close my suitcase, throw one last look at the mountains and the sea. End. And here we are at a height of ten thousand feet above sea level. The bright sun shines through the windows of the cabin. Among the white cirrus clouds as pillows just lazily floating icebergs mountains North Caucasus. And down there at the foot of a cozy house we will have to wait for Samvel and his family. We can only wait for the next summer – and again in Abkhazia, the country of wonderful nature and amazing people in the region where there is always something new.
