Re the letter “Armenia’s Military Highway” (March ’06, pg. 19), actually the Military Highway and Mt. Kazbek are in Georgia, not Armenia. The highway follows the Terek River, which cuts an 8½-mile gorge, the Daryal Gorge. The route of the 1992 Russian exodus, the highway goes north from Tbilisi and terminates at the Russian border.

The scenery is stunning, and if one goes on a Sunday there are many fascinating Sunday markets straight out of the last century, as I found on a visit in September ’99.
