Kura River. Article #3. Vol. 7, pg 39.
Geography is a real bitch without a map. Reading Britannica’s entry on the Kura River, we’re told several facts:
- Kura is the largest river in Transcaucasia
- Kura runs through Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan
- Kura dumps into the Caspian Sea
- You can navigate the Kura all the way up to Yevlax
To divert attention from the fact that I have no idea where or what Transcaucasia is, I’ll just say that I’m adding Yevlax to my must-visit list, just based on its name.
Ok, I looked it up. Transcaucasia is just the area south of the Caucasus Mountains, between the Black and Caspian Seas.
Oh, and here’s a map, annotated by yours truly. Now you know where it is (no thanks to Britannica).
Lots more about the Kura at Wikipedia.
