Today in Georgia

The mountains and river (our lunch table view!) around Vardzia, Georgia, with its cave city built into the cliff face, and nearby Khertvisi Fortress.

Monday in Tbilisi

Monday pictures from the capital of Georgia.

I’m a cat magnet, and this kitten on top of a mountain nearly came home with me! Such a big purrer! Then there was the random dog on the stairs up – followed by a random DUCK.

Tbilisi’s skyline shows the city’s history as a crossroads between Europe and Asia, with some Soviet architectural scars to boot. So many beautiful old buildings are falling to pieces.

And then there was the mountaintop Soviet-style entertainment!

Day One in Tbilisi

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!

Goodbye, Romania!

We have another two hours before we can check in for our flight, but we are at the airport in Bucharest, waiting to travel to Georgia.

Bran Castle

We visited Bran Castle – allegedly Dracula’s castle, but really a royal residence – yesterday. It’s like a Disney house!
