... the border town of Batumi. Out came the map and we peered over the detail before deciding not to take the main road but to take the primary road across the country and get to Tbilisi quicker....oh sweet mother of God what a terrible decision!

At 2 a.m. we woke to noises of a city and distant lights. Assuming it would take more time till arrival, we fell asleep again. At five we woke to eerie silence. The engine was shut down and we could see no land through the morning mist. What was going on? Many questions sprang into our mind. We wandered in a ghostly ship searching for reassurance, that we were not the only passengers on board. No noises, no people! Our ...
