Iranians head to Georgia for their New Year

Iranians everywhere are celebrating the start of Nowruz or the Persian New Year. It's a tradition to travel abroad if you can afford it to escape the restrictions at home. The republic of Georgia is the new popular destination as it abolished entry visas for Iranian citizens last year.

The BBC's Rayhan Demytrie has been to meet some of the new arrivals.
