Out and about in my neighbourhood

My neighbourhood has a number of churches. They are almost all Georgian Orthodox but there is one Russian Orthdox church that De and the tall person and the little person go to and light candles for the people they care about. I am not allowed inside but the tall person says that it is has many icons and beautiful paintings of saints. Two famous priests are buried in the grounds of the church and many people go there to pray.

Georgians, young and old, are very religious and they cross themselves when they pass a church. I often see Orthodox priests, like the one that raised me at the nursery at the Tabakini Monastery. They have long beards and wear black robes.
