Vladimir, you naughty boy!

"Insiders' reports from EU leaders' dinner with Russian President Vladimir Putin last Friday suggest Europe's diplomats have begun the week suffering from diplomatic indigestion.

Challenged over the economic embargo on Georgia, he accused that tiny state of planning to settle its disputes with Russia with bloodshed. Some of the Europeans were shocked." (BBC News.

I really hope they hadn't dropped their pants allready...

I like the new structure of your sites. It's funny that I saw the "same" photo (as seen from Uplistsikhe, I guess) today by another photographer, here:

Thanks. I thought the textlinks hid more information than they showed, so i brought out some extra thumbnails..

I think every photographer visiting Uplistsikhe "must" take at least one picture from that point. The view is breathtaking, and if you use a wideangle it look like the river is coming from the sky.
