Travel Pictures #21 - Tbilisi, Georgia - Dec 2011

by Colin Reilly

I started a new job working in Baku, Azerbaijan in late 2011 and due to a delay in my work permit I had to go on a visa run to Georgia. The plan had originally been just to fly in and out in a day but fortunately I manage to arrange it so that i could stay for a couple of days and take the chance to look around.

It was mid December so the weather was bitterly cold but I really loved walking around the ramshackle old town full of old churches and tumble-down house with wonky balconies, there is a real charm to the place, not to mention the fact that the food is delicious. I took this picture from the balcony of the restaurant I had dinner in on the second night. I’d just stuffed my face with a wonderfully filling and comforting kachapuri, which is in effect a bread boat filled with hot cheese and topped with a baked egg. In the foreground is the Metekhi St Virgin Church and behind is the Narikala Fortress, to the right the Soviet era Mother of Georgia Statue.
