    Broken bricks at the old, abandoned brickworks. The whole area looks like an alien landscape.

    This was one that i thought turned out fairly well.

    The first two and last two are names. I'm not sure about the middle word but I can check with our housekeeper next time she's here.

    What is interesting is that this and much of the graffiti around Tbilisi uses the English alphabet and, often, English words rather than the Georgian alphabet and words. I've noticed this before in other countries. English seems to be the international language of graffiti.
