Shop till you drop

Last week, I took you along with me to Temur Kvitelashvili’s concert. The show was called: “After Carnegie Hall” and unfortunately, I left out some important information. When I mentioned it was strange that I didn’t know more about Temur, I also wanted to mention: Temur has played all over the U.S. for example;

The Baked Potato, “last week I wrote-big potato” also, La Ve Lee in Los Angeles California, Iridium, Birdland  as well as Carnegie Hall in N.Y.

 

So I hope

that adds to the story, I truly enjoyed becoming friends with Temur. He is in my opinion, one of the truly great guitar players alive today! Now, it’s time to go shopping, somehow this story is a combination of many different thing from my past stories. This one is from when I first arrived, everything was still very new to me and when I look back, the change in my life along with how things have transformed in Georgia, is truly amazing! I think this is a good example of positive change, unfortunately, to get from Saburtalo to the Kidobani outdoor market” that’s what I call it” we had to take #81 van. You all know by now, that somehow the vans make me crazy. My wife and I set out to buy a new guitar for me and I must say that, going out to shop this time was so very different. First of all, we got out of the van and it was one of the most unique situations that I have ever had. So much was going on at the same time, my senses where completely overloaded! The sound, the sight, it was for me overwhelming, and the best was yet to come. We both walked through the overwhelmingly crowded street, and made our way to the place where we would buy the new guitar. After a long process, we concluded the sale and then, it was time to experience something so very new.  The sound, the sight, it was all that I had hoped for, it was for me one of the most incredible experiences that I can recall. It was just too much to take in at once, the cars, the vans, the people; it was all so new, it was all I could do just to keep up with Lika. As so many cars, sounded their horns and Turkish merchants crying: “erti lari, ori lari!”. Even though it was so overwhelming, at first, as we made our way through this never ending maze, somehow, I found myself so enchanted by the surrounding environment. I could certainly add so many more little details, for example, to compare the U.S. shopping experience to what my  first one was here in Tbilisi, it makes no sense to do so, “ why you ask” well so much has changed since that first experience. For example, the outdoor market has become so much better. Not to long ago, I went back to the outdoor market, to buy a new phone. I saw that so much had changed; I think you know what I mean. Honestly I don’t want to take from that first day, it was without a doubt one of my most memorable experiences for me, and it was somehow so new and unique that I missed how it once was. Now I will conclude by saying that: change is a good thing but yesterday, for Georgia, was also very good too….
