Cup of Coffee and Narikala and Anchiskhati and Rezo Gabriadze Theatre

Rezo Gabriadze Tower, Tbilisi, GeorgiaSveta and I have wandered all over Tbilisi and find it a small, quaint and very pleasant place to visit or even live in. There is lots of French architect everywhere and European flair would have to be the word of the old city style. The new city has its own style, but we are staying in the old city, as they call it. The Old Fortress is near where we are staying and yesterday we just walked for hours as we looked at the fortress and kept walking along the ridge, until we found civilization again…

I only took another 400 pictures yesterday and it was hard to decide what to post. I would love to post them all… 🙂

The very top picture is of a cool clock tower that we found walking the city. It has to do with a Marionette Theater (Rezo Gabriadze Theatre) (Rezo Gabriadze tower on the picture). Sveta and I have tickets to a show Friday at 7:15 pm. The next picture is of the fortress that runs along the crest of the hill over looking the city. It is built on the very top, of very steep cliffs and I could see why it was called, “The Impregnable fortress!” Officially called, “Narikala”. Very cool and a must see when coming to Tbilisi…

Also I will mention the most wonderful church in the city it is called, “Anchiskhati”. Okay – many will disagree but if you follow my blog you will understand that I have many many articles on churches as we travel. This church was built around the 6th century and is with out a doubt a true home of God. Most churches are just a facade but this church is the real McCoy. It is a must see for those of you that want to feel what it is like to walk into the house of the Lord and not some fake facade that tries to collect your money as is common all over the world. Nuff said…

That is enough for today because Sveta and I have some business to take care of. We are going to the new part of the city and look around…

Oh – speaking of interesting! It seems that 25 years ago Sveta traveled Georgia and she remembered these soda fountain drinks that they had. Well we found the spot and had some good old fashion soda fountain drinks just like I use to get when I was a little kid in my hometown at the drugstore…

Having a blast in Georgia and hope you all are having a great week. I will try to post one more time before we have to leave…
