Went to the old town of Tbilisi today. Entered it through a little underpass with some graffiti:
Then I was in the alleys that felt narrow and grey:
I know I keep saying this, but they often reminded me of certain East European capital cities:
Maybe Budapest or Prague:
Before the restorations:
Only some of the non-touristic courtyards looked very different:
And when I lifted my eyes, I could see strange buildings held in place by steel girders:
Either way, Tbilisi was becoming hip:
And it did have some rather thought-provoking graffiti:
I walked around until darkness fell, and the gates to the courtyards became all the more enticing:
There was a school that had a sign in German, designating it as the “sixth authorized school”:
I didn’t try to find out what that meant, though.
Instead, I went back to the Thai restaurant that I liked so much:
To love was to suffer.
Not to love was to suffer.
But to eat pad thai, that was good.
