Three hours until we get on the plane home (via a 1 hour stop in Baku and a 1 night stop in Doha). Couldn’t be more excited. We’ve been counting the days, which seem to go by extra slow now.
Tbilisi’s pretty cool, though we didn’t do much, just lazed around the comfortable verandah of the Skadaveli Guest House, chatting with the owner and other guests and making pot after pot of deliciously creamy Turkish coffee (for some reason, it’s much easier to find Turkish coffee in Georgia than in Turkey; people in Turkey seem to only drink tea). Hung out with a couple from Belarus for a bit last night. They were surprised that we knew the name of the capital of Belarus. We were even more surprised that they could describe the Malaysian flag in detail.
Top three observations on Tbilisi:
1. There are a lot of cheap delicious fruits (tiny pears, peaches, cherries, etc.)
2. It’s so difficult to find a Coke here (it’s Pepsi country)
3. There are a many of cool statues (photos of some of them below)
It’s easy to tell that we’re ready to go home. Yesterday, we took the cable car up to the hill where the huge Narikala fortress stands. We walked around a bit, and then took the cable car back down. Only on the way down did we realise that we had forgotten to go into the fortress. We were probably thinking of what to eat back home.
