I hitched a ride with some folks I met online (Couchsurfing.com). I had intended to spend at least a week with them but altered my plan when I realized they only intended to remain in Kazbegi for one night. Not again. We parted ways after the first night. So much for the Iranian-Spanish-American Joint Operation. Maybe next country.
I found myself walking once again to the Tsminda Sameba (The Holy Trinity) Church on the lower slopes of Mt. Kazbek. The stunning nature of this story book setting cannot be overstated but it hardly justifies the 1.2 billion shots I took of the church and its surroundings. I was ready to sign up for a twelve step program.
