Dachi took me to an outdoor flea market as a final place to buy the one last black papakha hat I needed to purchase!
This was filled with lots of relics and antiques from the Soviet Union! So much cool stuff to see! By this time, I was so exhausted, I could hardly take it all in…..
Not the knife he’s holding, but another knife Dachi showed me was a CCCP knife used with an AK47…..
First picture was him smiling! Second picture I asked him to look mean!! 🙂
Local artists works.
If I had my wits about me…I would have written down the name of the elderly artist whose below paintings of Georgian people was intense, rich with both detail and emotion…
Old Soviet cigarettes….one package dating back to 1877….
We had success finding the perfect and final papakha hat at the flea market! Next stop was the airport!
But first, I’ll recap some moments in the morning Dachi and I had together before going to the Narikala Fortress!
Parking at Peace Bridge!
Butterfly/Angel wings mural on a wall in the parking lot!
Walking up to Peace Bridge:
View of the Kura River from the bridge:
Walking through the little park with the cable cars to take us to the Narikala Fortress and Mother Georgia. The silver and metal tube like buildings are a music hall!
Dachi and I then grabbed a coffee and went to the cable car building !
Before I sign off on this blog….I’d like to share a few moments I had the evening before…walking from my sulpher bath back to my hotel….

And a final shout out to my hotel!!!! Orchard Boutique Hotel!
I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday in Georgia! It wouldn’t have been half the fun it it weren’t for my amazing tour guide – Dachi – he get’s his own blog!! 🙂
