walk, part 2.

03 October 2012
Welcome back for the second part of my early morning walk through Tbilisi. (If you're new, catch up on the first half of our walk here!) Remember, there are three of us walking and the baby's riding in the backpack. My six-year-old is in love with his Crocs purchased on our summer holiday and my eight-year-old is still rocking the neon trend.


After climbing the hill from Heroes Square, we entered a new part of the city. Dotted with old painted or stained doors, tall facades and wider strolling-oriented sidewalks.

 My son loved this street art...

I love the juxtaposition of sculpture and modern Georgian television playing on the Tbilisi Concert Hall.

While a few steps away, a women bundles flowers for sale. In a couple of months, she'll most likely sell the inky black sunflower seeds that dot corner vendors when Autumn is in full swing. You can get a small scoop in a newspaper cone for about a half Lari.


I love this wall. Isn't it amazing, dripping in lush greenery. And, where do you suppose that papered steel door, between the benches, leads to? My son thinks it must lead to a deep, dark dungeon. My daughter votes for a secret, candlelit passageway.


We're on Rustavelli Avenue now-- one of the main avenues in the city. It's grand and Tblisi's version of the Champs de Elysee (sort of). Here's one of the newer bus stops.




And, we've arrived at our final destination. After all of that walking, we sat for a bit and indulged in flaky European pastries, rich hot cocoa and a frothy cappuccino for me. See that table on the end (by the uncovered hole in the ground!)? That's where we sat and ate some of these....
