Day 5 -
One can only envy those who are in Shatili and Mutso for the first time. Even after Tusheti, which borders Khevsureti, one cannot imagine such a big difference between those provinces, their architecture is similar, but Tusheti and Khevsureti are complitely. No building of Shatili is a masterpiece, but altogether they make on fortified village with scense of strength and elegance. Looking at Mutso, one might think is it a fortress crowning a high hill or a village. After Mutso launch in the nature. On the way, back visiting one more village Anatori. In late XIX there was an epidemics in Khevsureti, this village became tabooed and diseased people willingly were going there to die in isolation for not to spread disease. Even today skeletons of those people lay on the shelves of the burial houses. Coming back to guesthouse. Supper and rest.
