In lieu of writing, some images of life in Tbilisi…
(all photos from my Instagram account: susanastray)
First daffodils of the year on my desk
Pool view from my beloved rooftop gym
Local bakery (and a fine example of the funky local alphabet)
Shoe repair sign. Poor shoe.
Street signs make a sort of impressionist painting of picturesque urban neglect
The view from my treadmill, dusk
Tbilisi’s charming bohemian style at an outdoor cafe
This is NOT my gym. (perhaps it should be?)
My new favorite cafe at the end of my street. They play old jazz crooners. Could be 1920s Paris.
Signs of the season: these flowers simultaneously appeared on every street corner stall.
Classic Soviet Volga. Retro style.
Sunrise kingdom. My apartment in the morning.
DON’T FALL FOR IT.
