I've got horrible back pain and I am afraid to make a move. Took a hot bath, a salipyrine, I hope it will help. The weather is very hot and quiet. A comission arrived to check on us and on our inspectors. Well, we'll see if it gets better or maybe even worse: lately we are facing constant problems and holdbacks every time we want to go somewhere.
The first truly hot day. I went to church – today is the festival of the Holy Trinity. After breakfast I set off for Miskhor and on the way there, at the narrowest point of a bend in the road, a huge vehicle packed with soldiers drove out towards us. As there was no room to pass, it almost crushed us. I was outraged to see such shameless driving. They paid not the slightest attention at what was going on around them.
Zinaida Yusupova came for tea, full of concern and deeply shocked by all that had happened. Her hands trembled more than usual. Then we went for a stroll on foot with Zenia, Zina and Orbeliani; we can’t go by transport anymore because those scoundrels have taken all the petrol. I was fatally tired and I felt so horrific that I barely moved my legs; probably the body’s “contre coup” to all the anxiety and so on.
