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.

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.

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.

Another issue in Tbilisi - during holiday season you will notice a lot of petards blown in front of your footsteps.

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.
