It's already end of second decade of January, 2015 and you might wonder - why I'm writing a blog post regarding New Years Eve?
Well, one thing I've learnt by living in Georgia - everything is relative. So why not to write a post of a visit to Tbilisi Dezerter Bazaar on New Year's Eve? Well, actually this visit happened on December 30 (a day before New Year's Eve)
Warning - Some of the images may be inappropriate for some users, on some of them are pictured slaughtered animals.
I'm not a vegetarian but I must admit, there are times when walking through this market I have considered to become a one.
Georgian version of Christmas trees
Well, to explain this version of a Christmas tree I would need to wrap up another blog post, but in short - I have no idea why Georgians make such Christmas trees.
Pumpkins for sale at Tbilisi Dezerter market
Mandarins at Tbilisi Dezerter market
Tbilisi Dezerter Bazaar
Piglets for sale at Tbilisi Market
Well, this is another interesting trend in Georgia. As New Years comes closer, more piglets are eaten.
Chicken for sale at Tbilisi market
I don't know why they are yellow, personally I would avoid to buy any of meat products at Bazaar, probably they are just fine, but my inner feeling just keeps me avoiding of such products.
Onions for sale at Tbilisi Dezerter Bazaar
Vegetables at Tbilisi market
Crowded Tbilisi market
Pickles at Tbilisi market
Fireworks for sale at Tbilisi Market
Another issue in Tbilisi - during holiday season you will notice a lot of petards blown in front of your footsteps.
Fruits at Tbilisi Dezerter Bazar
In short - Tbilisi Dezerter Bazaar is just a regular market, well if you are hopping it will be like La Boqueria Market in Barcelona, you are wrong - it wont.
The infrastructure at Tbilisi Dezerter bazaar is poor, market is overcrowded and you have a chance to get knocked down by a car which will deliver goods in a markets rush hour.
Of course - here you can get plenty of vegetables, fruits, meat and even fish for much better price than in local shops.
