After a while of hanging in Tbilisi, everybody got bored of the town and we wanted to explore the outer world. Erik wanted to show me the mountains. Since Baidi had left, somehow I fell into a kind of depression. More accurately: I had been depressed the entire time only that I didn't notice my state while Baidi was with me. Anyway. Now she was gone.

I didn't really care where we would go. Georgia seemed grey, sad and cold to me at the moment. Moreover I was sick. I missed Baidi. I couldn't stand being without her. So I changed my ticket to go back to Germany earlier than I had planned before. Of course there was disappointment everywhere. I didn't want to disappoint my lovely friends. They would have liked me to stay forever. Georgian hospitality is not only known all around the world: it's real. Inside Erik's home I wasn't allowed to do anything myself. His mom made me feel like I'm her own son instantly.

Anyway, we decided to go to Bakuriani, a small village in the Caucasus mountains somewhere close to the famous town of Borjomi (where the produce the world-famous and tasty ). If you want to find out more about the region, you should check out the Wikipedia entries on Bakuriani and Borjomi.




The night before I had stuffed all the warm clothes I possessed into my backpack. We got up early in the morning, tea and food were waiting for us on the kitchen table. We were quite tired, so I don't remember everything exactly. I think we had some wine or kognjak. We greeted Erik's mom and grandmom goodbye, then we left the apartment. The elevater rumbled up the bay after we had pressed the old and rusty button.
