The lady who sells little things

I would like to introduce you to the lady who sells little things. She sits in the same place every day, regardless of the weather. If it is raining she covers her little shop with an umbrella and if it is cold she wears her coat. She sells newspapers and magazines and lots of little interesting and useful things, such as tissues and matches.

I particularly like her gravity defying table and fragile chair that looks as if it would collapse if a butterfly landed on it.

There are lots of ladies who sell little things on the streets of Tbilisi.

Yellow cab – Tbilisi style!

On this morning’s walk I saw a yellow taxi. The tall person told me that yellow taxis (or cabs as they are called in the States) are very popular in New York. He said they are iconic, which means they are part of the culture of the city and instantly recognisable by people all over the world.

Hmm, it would be nice if my yellow taxi was iconic. It seems to be well equipped for it’s job. It even has a roof rack to carry extra passengers when it is full up inside. I also noticed that the driver has decorated his taxi with a very stylish ‘go faster’ stripe in a dashing ‘racing gray’ color!

So you see, Tbilisi has yellow cabs too and I think they are very iconic.
