outside tbilisi…

So I got to go outside the city a little and got to see some of the beautiful countryside around the city.river.jpg

We pulled up to this ancient, beautiful church on top of this hill. I can’t remember what it was called, or how old it was (I want to say it’s from 1100?) but I’ll try to find out. It was pretty humbling to be near and inside something this old.

And behind the church was this big tree with all these tiny pieces of fabric tied to it, which is supposed to make your wish/prayer come true.


Also, I was glad to see there were other tourists here, taking photos of the priest who was hanging out in the parking lot, hoping to talk to people. so it worked out well for all of them.


Then we moved on to the ancient capital of Georgia - it was the seat of power in the country between 500 BC and 500 AD. The main thing we went to see was another old church, a cathedral that was still in operation.

and I got a few photos of the interior as well, although since I didn’t want to get my ass kicked by a bunch of priests I wasn’t using a flash, so there’s a bit o’ blur…


but it was pretty spectacular.

Then we went back to Tbilisi, rested up a bit and went out to dinner. I finished up my night in this swanky little place in the shadow of yet another beautiful church.



Ah, Tbilisi, I hope to see you again soon.
