The Russian Border from Georgia

The Russian Border !! 
Lots of border guards and men in huts watching everything - including us !

A brand new monastery was under construction near to the border. From their grounds we could see the pair of golden eagles in the distance.  The priests came out to look through our telescopes at the birds, they were ecstatic to be able to see the eagles and were well impressed with the telescopes although we did keep them on the birds and not the border!

A pair of golden eagles on the border between Georgia and Russia. 
The security police told us we couldn't go any further up the hills even though we were still in Georgia so we decided to beat a retreat, all quite happy with our morning.......the Russian border, a pair of golden eagles and a monastery to look round. Not bad for a mornings work !
