It's morning in Georgia

Things I passed on my walk to work in Tbilisi today:
  • two dumpsters on fire
  • a traffic jam caused by demand for khachapuri (cheesebread, Georgia's national fast food)
  • two guards from the state chancellery in a fistfight
  • an 8 year-old casually smoking a cigarette
  • women selling clementines for 40 cents per kilo (2 kilos = lunch for a week)
