Kartlis Deda is1)                          strategically important crossroad where Europe meets Asia.
So when I arrived and a taxi picked me up from Tbilisi airport and drove me to the city centre,I started out of the window and noticed the obvious requirement for 2)                       .Obvious because much of the city is a building site and you don’t built for any reason.They build skywards and into the rock.Terracota houses perch over Tbilisi like the mansion and spiraling roads of the Hollywood hills.
Thick,wooden 3)                  replace traditional scaffolding.The washed tome and marbled museums and houses in Tbilisi are contrast to the surrounding villages where you witness real poverty.
The striking backdrops to Tbilisi are rolling hills and can hear soft south flow of the Mtkvari River. Today the river splits through the city 4)                 .Taxi are everywhere,a sign of ot hope,the expectation for visitors and weary tourists requiring transport.
As a summit I reahed Kartkis Deda,designed by sculptor and Tbilisi native,Elguja Amashukeli and 5)              on the top of Sololaki hill in 1958,the year Tbilisi 6)                   its 1500-th 7)                            .

Kartlis Deda stands all the way up there,upon the hill and over-looking her capital.She is silent,a shining tall construction watching over Tbilisi.
