Kabardino Balkaria

Our Russian-Abkhaz travel brought us to many different places in just a few weeks.

It was great, but deeply fatiguing exploring: so many of the places we visited are home of tragedies and pain, and in many of them a deep undercurrent of subdued, muffled violence feels just inches away below the ground.
The Caucasus is a hard place, of incredible populations.

But in one republic, for the very first time we felt simply… at peace. Relaxed, happy, without that note of buried-too-shallow trouble we felt before, but with a feeling of warmth and gentleness.
Kabardino Balkaria has welcomed us so: gently, respectfully, and has left us with beautiful memories, the true wish to visit it once again, and the joy new friends.
Maybe we were just naive, but sometimes, it is just beautiful to feel well someplace.
