I do field service regularly on the glass bridge - seen in the beginning.

Went to a wedding recently - the entire day.  Brothers and sisters did these dances (old brothers too!)  They love singing and dancing. They sing without music - beautiful in harmony.

The city Tbilisi is one of the newest tourist attractions of the world as the nature with north and south Caucuses mountains is breathtaking.  The city has very old buildings. Unique style balconies in wood which looks like lace.

The wine industry originated in this area..... I think Noah drank too much of this wine!   They mature it in the ground in large pots!    It goes down real SMOOTH!!!!!!

I was wondering if you were making a connection. I think I saw a T-shirt once that said:

BEER - Helping Caucasian People Dance Since 1842!

[or words to that effect] 😎

P.S.-- I hope people will forgive the joke because I actually think this kind of dancing shown in the video above is beautiful.

A lot of culture here and many of the tribes can tell you stories where they come from. They drink beer  too - a lot...... but wine is their forte.. it is a 4000 year tradition and they have approx 525 different grape varieties!

The original "white guys" Caucasians, come from this area. Armenia (neighbour) was part of ancient kingdom of Urartu. 

Turkey took mount Ararat from Armenia during the genocide period I believe but one can still see it from the Armenian capital city, Yerevan 

In the museum, I saw a massive cauldron which was taken from Assyria in time of Sargon 2. 

Georgian language and Armenians see themselves as related peoples.  Of course throughout the history they were taken over by Turks, arabs, Russians etc which influenced the culture.

These two countries are strong orthodox Christians and managed to retain this. I think the mountains assisted them to fight back invaders successfully.  Mountains everywhere....... even modern warfare has problems with mountains (as in Afghanistan).
