Into Georgia. Had to fill in a form about swine flu at the border which the border guards didn't seem to know what to do with. After about half an hour they stamped it and handed it back to me. The next day had the first run-in with the police - he pulled me over but only wanted to know where I was from and if everything was okay. Georgian villagers all sell produce outside their houses, but each village only specialised in one thing. One village will only sell apples, the next will sell cheese, and the next will sell wooden bedsteads.
