Border crossing: Our bus from Rize in theory went all the way to Batumi, but when we re-emerged from customs and passport control (slight delay because of our many visas and some questions over my US visa), the bus had already gone, or we assumed that when we had waited 20 minutes with two other passengers from our bus, who also decided to give up. So all four of us piled into an old shared taxi/bus costing 1.5GEL to get us to Batumi.

Casinos: Batumi is clearly a gamblers' paradise, with casinos on every other corner.

Beach: Lovely - but stony - Black Sea beach, with lots of people stripping off and plunging in. We paddled and the water was tempting, but our swim gear was back in the hotel.

Coffee/fod: try Privet Iz. Lavazza coffee but very nice soups.
