Now we were on to the Georgian Military Highway. This road took us towards the North up a valley, getting higher was we went further along. The next stop were the churches of Ananauri, built over a reservoir which was opened in the 1980s flooding several villages. It had been proposed to build the dam higher up and flood the churches, but popular protest won the day.
