The Dry Bridge Market is one of the largest flea markets in all of Tbilisi. Everything from kitsch souvenirs to paintings by local artists to soviet memorabilia and everything in between is up for sale at this little overlooked spot in the city. Thankfully I didn’t have a lot of spare change on me the day I visited otherwise I would’ve spent all of it on a lot of things I didn’t need. I did have a few Rupees on me though that I happened to exchange with a fascinated collector at the market. He’d never met a Pakistani before let alone seen what a Pakistani Rupee banknote looks like.
