The town itself is charming. A wonderful walk back in time.
Lots of locals selling homemade wool items. I bought a pair of wool slippers like these yesterday.
Colorful mats and souvenirs.
Handmade wool socks.
A seller waiting for customers.

Papakha Hat Time
View of Tsnori
One of many funny moments of my trying to pronounce a Georgian name of something. I called the town Tsnori – Snori – I couldn’t get the ‘T’ sound at all.

Car from the times of the Soviet Union.
What makes Georgian wine so famous worldwide – well one reason – is how it is kept in clay pots in the ground. This is a smaller example of what the clay pots look like.
The restaurant was filled with Russians, Armenians and Georgians. The atmosphere was fantastic, alive with robust energy. Like I was in a James Bond movie and stepped into a Russian bar where everyone was drinking vodka (they were!) while talking and laughing loudly with local music and burning hot fire places mixed into the medley.
Traditional Georgian Food
Dachi ordered pork and potatoes.
I ordered the sausage. The food was delicious!
Drive Back to Tbilisi
Another wonderful day exploring this beautiful country.
