Random pics from Sochi

Interesting sights on the streets of Sochi.

It’s great to explore a city on foot, possibly the best way to see little things here n there. The streets near the city center are small and jumbled.

Walkway along the Sochi-Adler road, probably the most important road in the city.

While asking for directions, one lady asked me to jump in her car since she was going the same way. Surprise surprise! The vehicle was made for left-hand drive! Apparently, made-in-Japan cars are quite popular, and Japan, just like India, South Africa, UK, Australia, SE Asia, etc. drives on the “correct” side of the road. LOL 😀

hello hello…

I also found people quite polite. “Пожалуйста” (something like पाझाल्यस्त) means both ‘please’ and ‘you are welcome’, and everyone dutifully used it.

Напитки (beverages), охлажденное (chilled), минеральная вода (mineral water), cоки (juices), пибо (drinks).

Georgia is just across the border few kilometers away. This dish is called Khachapuri.
