Tbilisi

Posted by Hippo Bean at 9:52 PM
The city straddled the Kura (Mtkvari)river, brown but flowing with a fierceness. The most eye catching icon was the glass bridge. It was cool to walk on it under the glass cover and at night it's lite in blue. Once could see how the river meandered through the city from the view up in the citadel of Narikala. We wanted to do souvenir shopping but was made to walk from the old city to the non-impressive Freedom Square and then along the Rustaveli Ave, which claimed to be the most beautiful street in Tbilisi, but the buildings flanking it were rundown and old, with very little architecture. The newly open historical museum only offered photographs of people and things. We retired early to the Holiday Inn which for me, was the only impressive thing in Tbilisi. The city name sounded so cute but the city was a let down.
