Kakheti – The Leftover Pictures – Part I: The Oil Well

Arriving at the oil well.

Here are some more pictures I wanted to post, but didn’t get around to adding before.  This first part is from our stop at the oil well; as I may have mentioned, we didn’t spend that much time here, but we took a bunch of pictures, and I quite like the ones with the oil.  Part of the reason, I suppose, is that I had no idea oil was so reflective, and the imperfections of the oil’s surface distorted the reflections in an interesting way.  I could have stayed here for hours, but we had to get moving relatively quickly in order to get first to Sighnaghi, where Jeff and Nata would drop us off, and then let them get back to Tbilisi by around 10—I think Jeff had initially intended to go to the Italy-Georgia football match.
