Back to the village of Zabeshi we picked up our car and took the same way back we hitchhiked but continued to Ushguli. Concerning the guide book it is Europeans highest village where people live all year long (is Georgia part of Europe?). The drive was a big adventure again. The street was partly right to a canyon and we were happy that no car came from the other side at some narrow points.
After another hiking day we slept in the car (because we were running out of cash). We decided us for a place with free view towards the highest peak of Georgia – the peak Schchara (5.200m). The thunder storm at the night was quit heavy but we enjoyed the perfect panorama at the next morning.
But we survived also this part and after arriving in the village of Khopuri we stayed together with a farmer family. And this because our new polish friend Piotr knew some Russian and had a lot of patience. The couple invited us to stay for free cause they could travel with us. The daughter of the family showed us around including a natural Jacuzzi of the river. At the night we were singing German, Polish and Georgian songs together with the youth of the village. At the next morning we woke up in the idyll I was describing at the beginning. Perfect!
