Soon after I packed my drone back into the box, a military pick-up arrived and two people come out of the car. Very serious, one of them with a rifle.
-Where are you from – the older of them asked.
-Poland – I said, expecting a bit of indulgence, as Poland took Georgia’s side in the 2008 conflict with Russia…
Did you take photos in that direction – one of them asked, waving somewhere to the north, where the border with Chechynya was.
-No, I just took photos of this rock formations. – I said scared, but trying to remain calm.
The two man stood a while, then returned back to the car, we said goodbye to each other…
Well, I told the truth, and soldiers apparently did their job not wanting to threaten a tourist. Lesson learned.
