Religious Nut Job
My traveling companion took to introducing me to his Georgian friends as a "religious nut job".
I can see his point.
On our way to Georgia, we paused in Istanbul.
It was a Friday evening during Ramadan, and I found myself profoundly moved to be praying at The Blue Mosque.
Later on our trip, I found myself praying here. At the church of The Holy Trinity, Gergeti. (42.49.0504N 44.51.68284E)
In order to do so we had to get a little over a quarter of the height of Everest and to the highest place on earth I have ever been.
The physical exertion was rewarded by finding myself at the most spectacularly located place of worship I have ever visited.
I commend religious nut jobness to you all.
