Dateline: Gori, Georgia—15 Mar. 2017 (Note: I'm writing this the following morning. I was too tired to write last evening.) I woke up to another slow drizzle this morning. It may have rained most of the night, as the puddles were much bigger. I did most of my packing the night before. Upon waking up, it was just a matter of getting dressed and loading my cubes into the pack. Having spent four nights in the same room I had spread out my stuff a bit more than usual, but the cubes have earned their keep.
Dateline: Poti, Georgia—14 Mar. 2017 Last night it rained. I heard the tapping on my hotel room window but didn't bother look out. Since there was nothing I could do about it, I wasn't getting out of my warm bed to investigate. By morning it had stopped. After my usual morning routine of doing an hour of language study while still under the covers, the streets were mostly dry, and only puddles remained.
Dateline: Poti, Georgia—13 Mar. 2017 For my two-week anniversary of being in Georgia, I took the day off. Well, I did my my lodging arrangements for the rest of the trip. I have one more night here in Poti, then two nights in Gori, and I’ll finish out the trip back where I started in Tbilisi. When I woke up this morning, I realized I overdid the walking yesterday. My legs said, “stay in bed.
Dateline: Poti, Georgia—12 Mar. 2017 These reports are much easier to write earlier in the day. This one is being written at 11:30 p.m. because I took a nap for most of the early evening. Today was the first day in a week where the weather cleared up. It was bright sun and blue skies over Poti. The wind even let up for a better part of the day. This got me out exploring.
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.
