Katskhi Pillar
06/14/2014
The Katskhi pillar is a natural limestone monolith located at the village of Katskhi in western Georgian region of Imereti, near the town of Chiatura. It is approximately 40 metres (130 ft) high, and overlooks the small river valley of Katskhura, a right affluent of the Q'virila. In historical records, the Katskhi pillar is first mentioned by the 18th-century Georgian scholar Prince Vakhushti, who reports in his Geographic Description of the Kingdom of Georgia: "There is a rock within the ravine standing like a pillar, considerably high. There is a small church on the top of the rock, but nobody is able to ascend it; nor know they how to do that."

i remember as a child grwiong up in the USSR. i was young and didn't appreciate the significance of what i was drawing, and would doodle stars of david, crosses, and even swasticas. but i knew to quickly erase these symbols off my paper. i knew that if a teacher happened to come by and see them they would notify the principal, who would notify the police, and the police would come to your house and ask your parents some serious questions. i also had family and friends disappear in Russia after such visits. did you know that in Moscow there is an entire cemetary dedicated to the reporters who died seeking answers...ps. i completely agree with TexasFred
