Some pictures from yesterday in Tbilisi, Georgia.
The traditional architecture (the first one is from our kitchen window), the Peace Bridge, the receipt from the supermarket – with all that Georgian writing!, and lunch. I’ve eaten a lot of great Georgian food in Ukraine, but eating it actually in Georgia was a first!
After sunset at the entrance to the old town of Zhoucun, Shandong Province, China last week.
An autumn scene at Baotu Spring Park in Jinan, Shandong Province, taken on my trip to China last week.
Here’s another shot of the National Library of Australia here in Canberra from Friday afternoon.
They were building this when I was in Seville ten years ago. I saw it for the first time in 2013, and we returned a few hours ago. That is only part of this record-breaking structure.
Dropping my brother at his city apartment in Canberra this afternoon. The pictures were taken at the traffic lights, so they’re not masterpieces!
It was a gorgeous day, however. We went to the National Gallery’s Versailles exhibition, and then to the Kingston Foreshore for fantastic Thai food at Morks.
The entrance to Canberra’s award-winning Hotel Hotel this afternoon. We went there (to Monster) for lunch for my aunt’s birthday. This is the famous flight of stairs up to the check-in and bar.
A picture from the centuries-old monastery complex in the centre of the city.
I don’t know if anybody else feels this way, but when you walk through those old churches and there’re all the ancient stone or marble grave markings on the ground, worn away by centuries of people walking on them, I feel terrible. I probably look like an idiot jumping around or over them, but I don’t want to add to the destruction!
Another picture of the National Portrait Gallery lit up for Enlighten Canberra in March.
Here is another shot from the weekend. A different projection on the National Portrait Gallery.
