the lieutenant has halting English and at one point says “And now I will take your guide away. No?”  The only thing that saved us was that his walkie talkie didn’t work and he couldn’t get reinforcements…. embarrassed he tells us to get out of town immediately…he doesn’t want anyone to know that someone slipped into his area…I have a multiple entry visa to Georgia, and an invitation letter from the Georgian Academy of Sciences, but that doesn’t seem to matter.
