#EWBC in Georgia: some pics from first day

An example of the amazing jewelery in the museum from ancient times

Having got to our Radisson hotel in Tbilisi around 3am in the morning yesterday we were on our way again just after 10am with a visit to the Georgian National Museum and a sightseeing tour of the city. This was followed by an excellent lunch at Azarpesha accompanied by traditional Georgian polyphonic songs and a series of drinking toasts.

Here are some photos from yesterday morning
