We go and after a bit 'of ups and downs begins a long descent with which we greet the Svaneti. But do we're not done with the hills. After a few kilometers of lowland our friend the gps tells us to turn left. We obey. And immediately a police car there begins to stalk, is the second time. They make a few meters, stop behind us then depart as soon as we leave. A few more meters and stop. In the meantime, it's raining and we're struggling with a climb that never ends. At one point the road becomes an expanse of stones. Here if you mess up you have no escape, you expect the gravel. And always with the stalker cops behind. Every now they stop and ask us where we are going and seem they want to give us a lift, but we do not know the fee of this particular taxi. Rather to trust these guys we'll prefer to walk up to Tbilisi. At the end of a very rocky slope they stop following us. It does not seem real. They had been following since 40 kilometers! That is, all day.
We arrive in a rather ugly village on side of a river and we stop to buy bread and cheese. We want to sleep near the river, it's late, we're tired and wet. But guess who's arriving? The cops! New province, new shadowing. They ask us where are we going (again), we tell a city on the road, which is to far to be reached today, but we prefer not to say we'll free camp. We leave and, needless to say, they begin to follow us too!
It 's almost dark, we stop in a pasture near the river, cops or not.
And so the kilometers of shadowing becomes 60! It starts to rain again. We assemble the tent just in time. After a little 'there comes a car, here they are again, it is a nightmare! And then the absurd thing is that we do not understand what they want from us. Walking around in the pasture where we pitched the tent and go away. But the weirdest thing happens after about half an hour, when they come back again. But this time, with their wives and children! Show them the tent (we stay inside of course), we hear children saying "hallo, hallo."
Then, they go!
But during the night they return a couple more times. They do a spin and go, flashing us with the car lights!
Could them be our body guards?
