Georgia Tbilisi

Tbilisi and My Rug



November 8, 2012 

My Dear Family and Friends,

Six weeks ago, on my first day in the Caucasus, I wandered up Kozeveny Street in Tbilisi, Georgia.  I spotted an attractive rug hanging in front of a shop window.  On close inspection, it was a kelim – flat tapestry-hand-woven-multi-colored.  I liked the rug.

I kept on walking.

Tbilisi is a great city for walking.  My hotel was on the east side of the Mtkvari River near the Tsminda Sameba (Holy Trinity) Cathedral that towers over the city.
