Rustavi: Coffee with Mary 2

Mary 2 (so I can distinguish her from Mary of Mary's Garden) invited me to coffee. Mary 2 is a neighbor in our building.

I expected coffee.

What I discovered upon arrival were neighbors Mari and Tia (sisters) and a beautiful repast. It included:

Chacha (a Georgian alcoholic drink, which Mary 2 made herself)
Eggplant with walnut sauce
Homemade pickles (not dill and not sweet - tart and vinegary)
Pastry filled with boiled potatoes
A sliced banana 
Beans, nicely spiced
Cheese made in Mary 2's village
Tomato salad
Coffee to finish

There was an Old World ambiance about the lighting, the setting, our talk. Quite nice.
