Many years ago, the King of Georgia discovered the sulphur springs in Central Georgia and decided to build a city surrounding them. And so, Tbilisi (warm place) was born. These days the sulphur springs are somewhat of a tourist attraction and many people visit daily for a soak, scrub and traditional massage beneath the domed roofs.

Tbilisi is built on top of thermal springs. The water the comes from the contains sulphur and is around 40°-50°C.

Reflections on passing stillness
and soaks in sulphur springs;
A Rolls Royce parked for business
and riding on rivers sparkling;
hello, ever new beginnings blue heart

Indeed. But what I've learned from my voyages through this world it is all places have something to teach us and they are all interesting in some aspects.

#7 belongs to some Armenian tourist - look at the license plate. This country is full of Russian and Armenian tourists. Thanks dear friend.

#1 - Bricks, bricks and more bricks - love it!
#4, #5 - I love the reflection. Especially because the glass isn't vertical but has maybe an angle of 45°.
#7 - I just wondered, where I have parked my car!

#7 - no it's always the fault of the chauffeur, who belong to the car! (NO, that's correct, it's not the other way around!)! wink

Great reflection in #4. Still love the old and new together and how you present it to us.Looks like they think about it,when there is some cityplanning. Don't like so much ( not the photo ) the showyness of the gap between the few select and the normal people, sadly you are beginning to see that everywhere. Very nice series this one.

Thanks for the insightful comment and fav Peter. Agree with you on the subject of the gap between people.
