The Story - Homeland
It was raining outside but Dots cafe was full of people annoyed by weather . They were drinking coffee and talkin' to each other loudly and emotionally. I sat at the little table and started reading some magazine when some guy asked me if he could use the charger for mobile . After simple communication I found out 3 interesting persons : Tal Rabinovsky , Ariel Matzner and Silvia Rosenstein . Tal and Ariel were from Israel and Silvia from Argentina . It was their third visit in Dots cafe which turned out one of their favorite places in Old Tbilisi. They were ordinary travelers before Tal started telling his family story related to Georgia.
Tal Rabinovsky : "We have actually been planning this trip for the last 10 years. My grandparents mother and uncle left Georgia 43 years ago and moved to Israel, since then my mother and uncle never visited their homeland. My grandparents came to visit five years ago for the first time together (my grandfather visited Tbilisi, 11 years ago, with another relative).
So in the last decade my mother promised me that we will have a big trip with all the family in the capital and the rest of the country. But the only four months ago the idea came through a plan. Last week we arrived Tbilisi and an extended crew: my grandparents, my mother her boyfriend, my sister, my brother his wife and their baby girl, my partner and I, and his mother from Argentina.
On the first day near our hotel by Kote Apchazi street we found the perfect cafe for us: Dots - a great combination of tastes and fashion, I knew I'll return again when we'll be back from our trip around the country. We traveled for 5 days around the country: Kazbegi, Mtskheta, Gori, Borjomi, Prometheus caves, Vardzia caves, Rabati fortress, Kutaisi and many more.
On our last weekend we had a special surprise: my uncle came with one of his suns and the group was almost completely full. A perfect first trip to Georgia in the best combination, it was a big fun and quite emotional."
