Tomorrow we will cross the mountains into Tusheti. But there have been unusually heavy rains, and the locals tell us that a rockslide has blocked the only road to Omalo, our intended destination.

So we plan to take our bus up to the rockslide, where we will cross it on foot, carrying all of our luggage a distance of about two kilometers. On the other side, jeeps have been arranged to take us the rest of the way.
