The time of apricots and figs

IMG_0108

Yes, it is a time for figs and apricots and prices are becoming more friendly a day. Now you can get big and sweet figs for 2-2,5 GEL per kilo, but apricots for 3 GEL per kilo.

By the way, the “unfresh” look of the fig (like in picture) the tastier it is, so you can be sure to buy such without any doubt!

And be ready for melon as the next.

Photo-aftertaste of Independence Day

I could definitely say this year holiday celebrations were organized much better than the year before. Only the things I missed is local farmers specialties and possibility to get drinking water. The decision to locate the flower fair directly at the Parliament was good idea as well. Beside the hard restrictions for personal transport, citizens and guests have had opportunity to see how these restrictions, OF COURSE, were obsolete for governmental transportation. Despite some minuses, all the celebrations this year I can value as very good. Sakartvelos gaumarjos!
