He has a small house in town and a family consisting of a wife and three kids. They, in turn bring their friends over to see the foreign vistor, the first Westerner they have ever seen. We pose for photos and I'm taken around town for a walking tour. That evening we eat a well prepared dinner that includes a greyish whitish dish that looks like cottage cheese and tastes like some kind of meat. Find out it's goat brain. Next day, a family friend offers to take me and kids on a drive in his old white Lada to the top of the mountain to see the fortress and the views. From there we drive to see the beach, but never made it. On the way, as we passed through a rural intersection, I looked out my side window to see an old brown Mercedes (probaby the only one in the country?) barrelling down on us without seeing us.
