Tbilisi, Georgia – Afternoon Fun Part II – With Some Added Morning Moments and Last Bits of Sharing on My Final Day in Georgia….

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…..

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!

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….

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!!  🙂

S, 🙂
