Day 9: The Republic of Georgia Tour with Living Roots

In this 14 part series, we present voice recordings and tidbits taken during our tour in The Republic of Georgia that was organized by Living Roots. You'll get to see and hear what we saw each day and how we felt about it. We did not edit the voice recordings or photos so you can really get a sense of how we were feeling and what we experienced on this trip. We hope you enjoy these experiences. 

Day 9: Summary

Day nine found us taking cover from some serious early morning rain and trying to provide Zac with some time to rest before another long day tomorrow. His cold worsened overnight, and he spent most of the morning asleep (more like passed out). As lunch time drew near the skies cleared and so did Zac's head. Off we went to a fish market where we picked out our fish and brought it to the restaurant next door. They did an expert job of preparing the fish in the best way it was suited; and they absolutely knew what they were doing - it was amazing. Our lunch was accompanied by the best new friend we could make - a cat! So we fed her some of the fish we could not eat (due to being beyond full) and felt all the better for meeting her. Oh, and Zac felt all the better after having a huge portion of cha-cha to help him feel better. With Zac on the (temporary) mend, we headed to Botanical Gardens for a wander around the park. We had gorgeous blue skies, and unbelievable views of the Black Sea and found ourselves at the lovely and small Japanese Garden. Here we played with another cat and listened to some determined frogs trying to get laid. They didn't seem very successful at the act itself, but boy they sure were loud while they were at it. Hear all about it below.

Highlights include: Downpour of rain to start our full day in Batumi, Zac's cold symptoms worsened, amazing fish market and more for lunch, cha-cha seems to help Zac feel better, visit to the Batumi botanical gardens, view of the Black Sea from above, some more cat time, another amazing sunset

Note: We get a little preachy against cigarette smoking in this post. Some profanity is thrown and we generally just sort of go off about it. Georgia is otherwise perfect; except for the constant smoking.

Day 9: Photo Roundup

Have a listen:

The frogs were in an amorous mood when we visited the Botanical Gardens. Let's just say they are more adept at calling for sex than they are at the act itself. We loved the sounds they were making - some of it sounds like the chittering of monkeys.

This is the ninth of 14 posts covering every aspect of our tour of the Republic of Georgia with Living Roots. We really hope you enjoy them!
