Stalin, Cave Dwellers, and Prometheus

Today we drove south from Tbilisi into the Kartli region of Georgia.

Our first stop was Gori, the city in which Stalin was born and which now houses his museum. 
Here a guide talks about his life.

We next drove to Uplistsikhe, a first millenium BC cave town.  
There were lots of kids running around.

After lunch we proceeded to Borjomi, a lively and attractive park famous for its mineral water. 
This photo is of a statue of a long, slender Prometheus flanked by a long, slender waterfall.

We're spending tonight and tomorrow night in the town of Akhaltsikhe. Much to our pleasant surprise, our hotel — like all the others we've stayed in so far — has excellent wi-fi, which has enabled me to post daily updates to this blog.
