“I had never seen a place like Svaneti. It was very cut off from the world – a one-lane dirt road and no guidebooks. And I arrived during the changing of the seasons in October. There were beautiful colors, beautiful women, great food, dancing, singing, and mountains like I have seen nowhere else in the world. It is different now, lots of tourists and new buildings, but the music is still there. The soul is still there,” this is how he recalls his first visit to the country’s historic highland.
