Batumi, Georgia

 

p1010092Batumi Georgia located on the coast of the Black Sea is the second largest city of Georgia.  What a sad place. The people there have been through so many wars and endured so much suffering it’s hard for us to imagine their lives on a daily basis. It was difficult to spend a day here and realize what they are sharing with us is their very best.

We visited the Gonio fortress, which is a combination of Roman, Byzantine and Turkish architecture.  We were entertained in a small auditorium with a folkloric show. They did a wedding dance which looked like they were gliding on glass and a saber dance where sparks were flying. It was absolutely remarkable and one of our most enjoyable experiences.

I'm an abysmal golfer. My blog is my object of rumination. I like to carry my heart to new places, fill it with as much awe and wonder as it can hold and and let it overflow onto the pages.
