Last night I took an evening walk to Mtatsminda park above the Old town. It was getting dark and I met a bunch of young men, each carrying beers and snacks. They were walking quite quickly on the pedestrian path in the woods as if a hurry. In their rush, they all stopped to do the cross sign as they approached a small christian shrine. So peculiar! Then they continued on to find place to sit and enjoy their drinks, snacks and company.
You’ll see it everywhere, people making the cross signs. I love seeing when the kids are rushing to school stopping to quickly to the cross sign when they see a church.
