We waited for hours at the border crossing from Turkey’s Black Sea coast. The waiting was unfamiliar: the concrete construction, the limited space, next to the endless sunset sky was almost overwhelming. Visiting remote areas, I’ve witnessed many surprising or unusual places. Some are like pictures from the past, others look almost futuristic. Georgia is somewhere in between. Many cities here are abandoning their traditional way of life, but the transformation never seems quite complete. Georgia remains conserved in time, carrying either its Soviet industrial heritage or a timeless closeness to nature.
