    If that video is any indication of Georgia, it is a stark country, but one beautiful in its austerity where men jump around a lot. Also, Georgian women are hot.

    Thanks for sharing, artavazd.

    By the Jägermeister-drinking gods... This summarizes exactly why I like the diversity of the native Caucasian cultures

    Look at 03:49, the guy in the left is wearing an iron muscle cuirass, fastened in the Romani way, wow. Don't know if it is historical, but it certainly is a nice touch.

    Now, I agree with the beauty of the Georgian girls, I have met some here in Greece and they are very good looking.

    Another feature of the Georgian highlander culture is their conservative dress-code and usage of colours and patterns, which apart from the distinctive headgear telling a story that stretches for thousands of years. Most people tend to think that it is merely "Cossack"-fashion, however it is a melange of local Caucasian traditions as well as Iranian and Central Asian features. Their long coats, boots and the way they wear their trousers (Tucked inside their boots) is a testament of Central Asian dress-code, which was at the strongest during late Sassanian rule when such clothing was a sign of aristocratic status. Equally the pattern of the trousers are comparable to those of the Achaemenid infantry. Generally the Georgian dress-code resembles that of many Iranian nomadic and mountain tribes, and more so that of the rural areas of Armenia, Ossetia (Alan/Irōn population) and even that of the Turks of former Soviet Republic of Azerbaijan, especially in combination with the tradition of dancing. These are all of course indigenous Caucasian features and cultural elements.

    We read in certain sources that "Persian" dancers were highly sought after in the courts of China and Rome. We may speculate that many acrobats and dancers were Armenian and Lazic/Iberian (Georgians), as the Persian gambit was far rather musical (We hear of musical artists of greater prominence than dancers). Whatever the case the Georgians have a culture that they rightfully can boast as unique.
