Cup of Coffee and Georgia and Moscow and Syria…

Well this morning’s cup of coffee was wonderful and much needed. It was -10 below zero in Moscow when I got up this morning and had snowed about a foot. What a contrast compared to Georgia where we walked without a coat several days and the roses, tulips and other flowers are budding and blooming. I also did some thinking’s about Syria this morning as it was an interesting topic in Georgia on the news at all given times…

So lets talk about Georgia first. The name of the game in Georgia is watch what you take a picture of!

Everywhere we went we were watched very closely and even demanded to erase pictures. The photo is one I took with my cell phone camera. You see the more someone tells me to not do something, the more that I do something…

So while Sveta was being hassled about taking pictures on a beautiful Italian made walk bridge. I took pictures of the guard harassing her. Sveta is laughing because she is amazed that Georgia has become so much a police state. I told her to remember the trips she made to America and that hit home with her. Sveta did what she was told and satisfied the police before he took off and harassed a group of Germans who made the same mistake and tried to take pictures of the beautiful surroundings…

What was so important that we could not take pictures here or in fact almost anywhere that we went? Good question…

In the case of Sveta’s guard attack. She was taking a picture of the Presidential Palace. Now remember this palace is visible from all over because it is built on the cliffs of the river. The bridge that we crossed has a beautiful view of the Palace and is a natural photo spot. Hence everyone takes pictures because this is a tourist bus stop…

So hence, I took 200+ pictures of the Presidential Palace because I was not suppose to! I guess that is just me…

This picture right here of the Palace that I took will get your camera taken away! It will get you in hot water and possibly a day trip in a holding cell. Sounds dumb huh. No sounds like what I dealt within America many, many times. Hence I call Georgia my little American wannabe…

I had my camera destroyed once at a toll both in America, because I took a picture of the toll booth. In Russia I may be told not to take a picture at the border, but I have never been physically accosted like in America…

Now you understand my insistence in a good cell phone camera…

The good outweighs the bad in Georgia, but I do not want you to say that you were not warned and told about thousands and thousands of guards everywhere. They are watching you everywhere in the city. You can take pictures, but you do not have any idea of what you can take picture of or not. Sveta took very few picture this time and we just used my cell phone as it was hard for them to catch me taking pictures…

As you see by the photos that my cell phone takes quality pictures and we have 2000+ great pictures of our trip to Georgia…

Georgia was beautiful and definitely a worthwhile trip. Georgia is a safe place to travel and people are just fabulous. We only ran into a couple of occasions that me being an American and or Sveta being Russian caused tension with the locals. But for the most part people are very nice…

One little word of interest for the people that dislike your tax money from America being spent in another country. Georgia is fully armed to the teeth by America weapons. Not just a few American weapons but loaded with American weapons. They are proud of their free American weapons and have tons of TV shows to display these weapons at all hours of the day and night. A good underestimation would be billions and billions of dollars of weapons supplied by unsuspecting Americans and their tax dollars…

I have lots of pictures of tourists being harassed by the police!  It is nice to see our (American) tax dollars at work in Georgia helping to develop a police state just like it has been done in Israel. Democracy at its best…

Is Georgia worth traveling to? Yes! Would I go back? Yes! Why? Because the people are great and beautiful. As I have said many times, people around the world, just like in America, are great, but their governments suck…

Home is were the heart is and Moscow is home. It was nice to get back into Russia and it was a shock to the system as we got off the plane into -4 degrees temperatures. The contrasts between capitals of Georgia and Russia are very apparent right off the bat. The most apparent of which, is people per square km. Moscow is slam packed, where as Tbilisi is very small town. It was pleasant to be able to walk down the street and not meet 10,000 people in a block. That is what I say about Moscow and the games played by the western press and rallies all the time. Sorry but a 10,000 person rally in Georgia is a big deal, but a 10,000 person rally in Moscow is not a big deal. Population of Georgia is 4.5 million and just the population of Moscow is 15,000,000 on any given day…

Okay lets change subjects, as my thinking’s drift to Syria! Georgian news was over run with information on Syria and I gathered that there may be a little bit of worry about the future of Georgia because of a underhanded USA. Trust is not the word I would use anymore in Georgia. While Georgia is an American wannabe, that is enough reason to worry about the consequences of being an American wannabe…

So: The US, Britain and France have supported and funded and armed the Syrian terrorists from the start of more than a year ago. In fact, since the mid 1990’s the US has been involved in Regime change tactics in Syria. Weapons are being shipped to Syria’s terrorists through Jordan and Lebanon. Once again, the US, France and Britain are in bed and sleeping with the very terrorists forces they call evil, but who they kissed with love and joy in Libya not long ago…

Once again your tax dollars at work by our government. It is no wonder that the world abhors Americans. Our government makes sure that we are not loved by spending our money in places that do not help us to become better people…

That makes you just as bad because you look the other way and ignore what our government does to the world. Oh! I forgot you are happy that we destroy innocent countries. Innocent by the fact that they do nothing to us and are no threat to our security of our borders. In fact it is the other way around. America is the threat to world security…
