The first city in Georgia I visited during my teach abroad program outside of Tbilisi was Kutaisi, in February. Three months later I visited again and the change was dramatic!
Here is a shot of Bagrati Cathedral, and although the weather conditions had changed, the reconstruction seemed to be on hold.
The palm tree at Gelati Monestary – covered in snow in February and in full bloom in May!
Even the sky was brighter – looking out over the city of Kutaisi in February and May.
