Gugula became our good friend, always joking, a hard working shepherder, and a great singer of Georgian folk songs. He is origininally from Akhalsopeli in Kakheti. Now he works as a shepherder in Tusheti, in the winter at the winter pastures in Shiraki. In the background the great book of Lesley Blanch on Shamyl with the title " The sabres of paradise " No book fascinated me over the last weeks like this one. Here is a link to Amazon, but read also the interesting review there of Kakha.
