Traveling from Tbilisi, Georgia to Erevan, Armenia, we took a long bus ride down the Georgian Military Road, through the beautiful Caucasus mountains. At one point, right in the middle of total isolation and people-less nature, we stopped at the huge, surreal Soviet-artified semi-circular monument you see above. I guess it was some sort of bizarre view-watching spot, like the scenic stops on our American highways. We decided the men sitting around were photographers waiting for tourists, but they never got up and they certainly never offered to take any photos. Come back tomorrow and see the view--that was pretty spectacular.
Originally from New York, I spent many years in Belgium, as well as six months in the former USSR. I'm happily living stateside now, but I've taken many photos along the way and I'd like to share some. On a different note, I'm doing my best to turn the Brit hubcap into a Yank!
