At the end of November, my mother visited me again in Georgia. We decided to make a few easy day trips during her stay in Tbilisi.
Our first day trip was to David Gareji Monastery complex and Sighnaghi.
Although I've been to these places for a dozen of times, I never get bored of them.
This time we took a road to David Gareji monastery complex via Rustavi town (which actually is a place I would love to return to take some urban photography), made a short stop at Gardabani to buy a freshly baked Azerbaijani bread, and followed a rocky road to David Gareji monastery complex.
Road to David Gareji
Seems this is some military road, used by Georgian army located somewhere close. During the Soviet times, its said there has been a huge tank polygon somewhere in this area.
Oh, I always love scenes like this. Lovely.

We continued to the nearby town of Sighnaghi and spent about 10 minutes there taking a walk at Sighnaghi city wall which features beautiful views of Alazani valley.
