Armenia, Georgia

A party of ten persons from SWES carried out a short but highly rewarding preparatory ”expedition” to the historically troubled region of  Armenia and Georgia.  We travelled in 3 rented 4×4 Nivas and a Nissan from snowy Armenian mountains to tropical-like conditions at the Black Sea.

Besides the obvious historical theme some attention was also ofcourse given to the contemporary geopolitical situation for ex by shortly visiting Nagorno Karabach.  A part of the group was able to enter the strictly guarded border zone including the Georgian front line to Russian influenced South Ossetia. Although time was far to  short an effort was made to visit a third conflict zone, i.e. Abkhazia.  The status of Abkhazia and South Ossetia is a central issue of the conflict between Russia and Georgia.
