After almost no sleep in the hostel, the problem was with my back and snoring. We moved out of the city around 7am. 2 more people joined us from a hostel, Pedro from Argentina and a girl from the US. Tim drove to Singhighi, a lovely town on a hilltop with protective walls, we walked around.

Now it was. my turn to drive. I drank an energy drink to stay awake 5 GEL=2 €, and on to the winding road. We stopped at Numisi Winery, walked around and as we wanted to leave somebody came to offer us a tour with drinks, but we moved on. Off-road drive to hike close to Lake Lopota. The rain made us return after an hour.

Some more driving when Tim spots their friend from Germany traveling by bicycle to Inda, that meant a short stopover. Tim took over and drove to Gombori Pass for a view and back to Tbilisi where we returned the car and I bought some wine, 75 GEL=26.5 €.

After farewell from the Germans, I moved by metro (1 GEL, deep underground, fast stairs) to the ugly train station. I ate dinner at the cafeteria (buckwheat, grilled peppers, chicken, spinach, filled bread, and beer), 22 GEL, 8 €. I bought a sleeper ticket in first class for 172 GEL=61 € and at 20:20 we were on our way. I was sharing a compartment with Oleg from St. Peterburg. I put some wine from Georgia on the table and he added chacha. We had a pleasant conversation. We had a long border procedure and back to bed, I had a good night’s sleep in comfort (linen, slippers. towel, toiletries, shower).
