Just sitting (68)

No picturesque church, no magnificent mountain, but this is nevertheless from Georgia.

I hesitated long before I decided to upload this photo, showing nothing but a few persons waiting for a bus. But I thought these two middle-aged gentlemen wearing blue shirts brightened the view of the mainly grey and brown street. I also liked the bench they are sitting on, built around a big tree. But I fully agree, it's really nothing special, just a glimpse of daily life.

This is from the main street of Tbilisi, Rustaveli Avenue, or Rustavelis Gamziri, or more properly spelled რუსთაველის გამზირი.

Here is a larger version.

For the sake of gender equality I will post a workshop of three women.

I think this is from the same street. I can't understand why they didn't look happier but they probably didn't understand my attempts to explain they would be on TrekEarth.

They are probably selling products from their own gardens or kitchen. I am not sure what the white things in the blue bag are, but I would guess they are homemade cheeses wrapped in cotton. Cheese is a common ingredient in Georgian cooking, along with walnuts and pomegranates, everything generously sprinkled with fresh coriander.
