Tsophi is one of several villages in the Marneuli region of Georgia where ethnic Armenians and Azerbaijanis — all citizens of Georgia — live and work together. Renewed fighting between Armenians and Azerbaijanis in Nagorno-Karabakh touches everyone there, but the villagers try not to argue about it. Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but the ethnic Armenians who make up most of the population broke away from Baku following a war in the 1990s.
