Until recently, there were only 20 families living in Gurdzauli, a village high in the mountains of Adjara. The Covid-19 pandemic and the state of emergency in Georgia brought unexpected change to village life. To avoid the danger of being infected, families started to move back to their ancestral houses. Once deserted, the houses are now full of people. The family of Givi Bolkvadze, 51, is one of them. Thirteen people have moved back to the family home.
