The coordinates above are for our house in Gonio.  Copy them to Google Maps and you will see the roof of the house.  I thought this would be a good time to show you our living quarters, modest as they are.  So the pictures here are from different spots and covers those rooms which we usually use.

First, here is the front of the house,  The host family lives on the first floor, we live in a roon on the second floor.

Our two story guest house.

Here are several pictures of the guest rooms on the second floor.

The large common room for the three guest rooms.

Our room is on the second floor, but off from the other guest rooms.

This view is from the porch looking into our room.

Our hunble room. Small but we are making it a place to live.

A quick shot of the bathroom. See we don’t have to squat.

Now some views of  other parts of our location.

This is the way we go down to the lower floor. Can you believe we woke up one morning and the cow was standing at the bottom of the stairs?

A view of our upstairs porch.

From the upstairs porch, laundry hanging over the yard.

A side area where we can hang close. There is a upstairs kitchen to the letf which we could use if we wanted.

We do somethings in the kitchen.

Suzanne at the kitchen stove with a big pot of grapes.

Tom boiling milk for our breakfast cereal.

Besides cows, we also have other visitors on the porch:

Every so often the chickens come to visit, just like the cow.

And just to give you a feeling of our mornings play this video.

Hope this was interesting for you.  Stay tuned for the next update.

    A cow visiting in the morning. Sort of like milk delivery from Royal Crest. And fresh eggs too. We love seeing the photos. Helps us visualize your lives so far away. Love, Dan and Jill.

    Tom and Suzanne, you both look great. It’s so interesting seeing where you live. There’s a lot of pink, and I noticed the shower in the corner of the bathroom. Loved the cockle doodle doo of the rooster. How long do you think you will be in that location? Thank you for the update.

    You are missing all of the political ads with the presidential election coming up next month!

    Thanks for sharing the pics of your living space. And the local milk and egg delivery! I was waiting for the rooster to crow. He certainly put his all into it. Suz, I assume the cooked grapes were for jelly?
    Still shirt sleeve weather. I have Tblisi on my phone to look at Georgia weather so I can see what is going on. Blessings and prayers, Betty and Kevin

    Sue and Tom,
    Loved the tour – especially the video! Guess you don’t need an alarm clock. The picture of your by the sea is wonderful. Thanks for sharing where you are living. It helps us know where you are when you talk/write to us.

  7. Tom and Suzanne,
    Your quarters may be small, but they look comfortable and adequate, especially after a busy workday. My wish for you is to keep making memories by enjoying the country, people, and culture. Time to return to the USA will be upon you before you know it. Stay safe and well. Joe Macan
