Dateline: Poti, Georgia—11 Mar. 2017 Last night I started my packing to prepare for moving day. After five days my stuff had spread out, but with only one bag there’s just not that much stuff. I saved loading the pack for this morning, but everything except for my bed clothes was ready to go. The packing cubes have really made this trip easier. My alarm went off at 7 a.m. so I’d have plenty of time to get packed and be ready for my ride to the train station at 10:30 a.
Dateline: Kutaisi, Georgia—10 Mar. 2017 I woke up to wind and finally decided to check a different weather site for some wind speed info. I had been using DarkSky, but it seemed to underreporting what I was seeing out my window. On AccuWeather I found what looked like more accurate info. Current weather as I was writing this article. For my non-metric speaking readers, that basically means a steady 25 mph wind with gusts up to around 50 mph.
Dateline: Kutaisi, Georgia—09 Mar. 2017 The walking and stair climbing yesterday took a toll that I had to pay today. When I first woke up, my feet felt pretty good. I was able to walk in slippers with only a slight twinge from the blister on my left big toe. I thought that might be a good sign so I had a normal morning with the Russian grandparents. Most everyone else in the house took a trip to the coast, and it’s been relatively quiet.
