Gonio or Apsearos was one of the most important Roman fortress cities on the coast of Colchis (Western Georgia).

The name of the fortress is associated with the name of the Kolkhida Prince Apsirt.

Once on the territory of the fortress there were five Roman cohort, t.E. Approximately 1200-1500 Legionnaires.

Now, in addition to the walls of the wall here, it is not particularly noticeable to watch here, except for several remains of the foundation, but once there were theater, hippodrome, barracks, baths and other economic and craft buildings.

Quite unexpectedly found strawberries! She looked very appetizing, but the taste turned out to be no, and even on consistency as cotton ((((

Besides us almost no one was, although they say that in the season there are quite a lot of visitors here, in recent years, the fortress is experiencing "Tourist boom".

The wall is constructed to be kindly, which you can not say about other buildings that have once been in the territory.

If you are not afraid of a height, you can stroll along the wall to which well-preserved steps lead. While we walked on her, heard dialogue dialogue with my daughter below. He told how dangerous to walk on the top of the wall, because everything is old, the stones can crumble. What a girl answered: "Well, out people go". It seemed to us that many modern buildings would hit much faster than this wall that was worth almost two thousand years.

Ancient sewage system from ceramic pipes.

Went walking along the village Gonio.

On the coast is completely dear. The sea merges with the sky.

On the way to the bus stop saw some meeting. Asked what’s the matter. It turned out that the people went on a peaceful demonstration associated with the protest against the taking by the authorities of land plots issued earlier.

Do not take the earth, Gada! Well, or something like that)))

The remaining half of the day, too, had to take something. Let’s just wander around Batumi. On the way, they went to several gestures from the center, they decided to find out the cost. Here is the average dachshund – 40 Lari (at the time of the survey), in season – +10 Lari. At Crystal, for example, if you stop for a week, ready to make a small discount. Rooms here are very cuddly.

My carpets-aircraft. Inexpensive.

In the store found delicious custard cakes. According to Andrei, they are called ecles. Mmmm, fingers license!

And on the lunch again Khachapuri in Ajars, just this time asked to do without oil, because it turns out very fat)) to the left, by the way, there is a freshly replenished SIMM "Magti". Bought for ignorance tariffs. It turned out that the Internet at Bilayna is at times cheaper, although without 3G. Then they bought all the same Beeline (3 Lari, plus 2 lari for 200 MB).

And Lobio. Decided to try what this beast is. It turned out that this is a dish of beans with greens and onions.

Came for backpacks that rest in the wedding salon at our hotel. It’s time to move forward. By the way, why should have such a confused face in the middle of wedding dresses?

Filmcarts got a good luck: next to us there were two little children. Good night, as they say))
