Above, one of the reasons for going to Georgia was to visit the Roman fort of Gonio, on the coast.
I caused a considerable amount of interest and amusement when I went into the Batumi fish market and started to take photos. The ladies working there quickly understood I was after interesting pictures of fish and food (photographing markets is a hobby of mine).
Above, the view of Batumi harbour from the Batumi Botanical Gardens. The gardens are nearly 100 years old and contain a wide variety of mature tree species. The garden was established by the last Tsar, Nikolas.
Below, we were treated to a performance by local dancers and singers. Probably one of the best performances of traditional music and dancing I have experienced.
