At home in Shilda

Levan Mosiashvili invited me to his home in Shilda to meet his parents, friends and neighbors. Shilda in in Kakheti, near the mountains that form Georgia’s border with Russia. During my too-brief stay, I was able to enjoy all kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables from Levan’s garden, as well as trout that he caught, red wine made by one neighbor, white wine made by another neighbor, and vodka made by a third neighbor. It was wonderful! Copyright Keith Kenney, 2012.

While driving me around to see the local sights, such as Ikalto Monastery, Levan bought 3 pails of peaches and more than a dozen watermelons and cantaloupes for family and friends; copyright Keith Kenney, 2012.
