Didube market, Tbilisi

If you want to see, smell and taste some genuine Tbilisi culture then take the Tbilisi metro and disembark at Didube metro station. The Didube markets (and the adjacent minibus station) are just across the street. While minibus drivers are standing in the middle of the crowd yelling out their destinations like "Gori! Gori" or "Batumi!" and waiting for their passengers locals are selling fruit and vegetables, kitchen accessories and old music CDs, water, wine and churchela (the Georgian Snickers)... And just a few meters away there is a loud and dusty construction site: a new road is being built... Tbilisi. You have to feel it.
