Next Day
One main route runs across central Georgia. We backtracked across it on a lollygag route that led through villages and suburbs; our driver socialized with police at checkpoints, he's a sly one who asked for double fare from us. The scenery made dramatic changes from the coast: subtropical lush hills leveled into grassland and then changed again into barren mountain landscapes. In central Georgia, heading south to the Armenian border, we needed 2 hours to travel 30 kilometers as our public bus detoured to drop off an old lady with her goat and take on a truckload of lumber.
