Katskhi Pillar
Katskhi Pillar
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."

domestic violence!!! Sounds like the 9stone wife who gets a shamis from the 18stone muscle bound vodka swigging husband. Do you know that until a few years ago in the UK when the police were called by a worried neighbour and on arrival the terrified wife would say "everything's OK officer" and he would go back to the station. Seems the international community need to find some way of dealing with bully boy Russia. Which of the former Soviet republics (and Finland) now feels safe.
