Day 6 - Riding a marshutka

It was raining and I had to go to hang out with my friends at the University, so I took my first trip on a Marshutka (#31). First I took the Marshutka going north, expecting it would circle around Rutstaveli, but no it went to the other side of the port. Luckily, I had been there on Day 2 so I knew where I was, and so I waved at the driver so that I could just get off at the gas station/fish market and and catch another back. It was 40 tetri for the first ride, and 60 for the second ride (payable when you get out). The fares are 40, 50, 60 tetri depending on how far you are going.

Naturally I used MyTracks to find out where we were going and to get off at the right street since the streets are not really obvious in the rain. I also found it rather funny to see the speed and zigzag pattern.
