Pankisi youths visit the United States of America: by The Editor

A group of young people from Pankisi and other parts of rural Georgia are visiting the “Heart of America”, courtesy of the American Embassy in Georgia. They are busy and are absorbing the country, its culture and its people on an incredibly busy and exciting schedule. They only have time to post these photographs below with a brief note, but will write more extensively when they get settled and have a moment to reflect on this incredible journey. Please enjoy their journey with them the through these photographs.
