Georgia is Fun…

Georgia is a wonderful place to visit and I think that it would be just as wonderful to live here. Prices are cheap, food is topnotch, people are friendly and it is very safe! The only thing I see is a pickpocket brigade of street urchins…

We are staying in the old part of Tbilisi and could not have asked for any better place to be. A simple two block walk and we are staring at a Radisson or a Marriott hotel that makes my skin-crawl when we walk by it. I am not a rich person wannabe and to see these people stepping out of limoes and such and right into a sterile environment makes me laugh, as they never get to see life as it really is…

Sveta and I are in a little hubby hole of a room that is near everything important to see and we can walk to everything easily. We are located just a few blocks from a Jewish Synagog and Sveta and I kept walking as we saw church after church of all denominations everywhere. It was really amazing and Sveta and I are going to walk to the Trinity Church today. Georgia is very religious and spiritual…

I am in heaven while walking around because I get to see my favorite car in abundance. The old Volga model 24. They are still running and most of them are still taxis as they originally would have been in the Soviet time. They are in good shape and remind me of my Old Volga…

Everywhere is small tiny businesses as people struggle to survive and every nook and cranny is a business. Anywhere that is free to set a business up that means… 🙂

The one thing we noticed right off the bat is that people very rarely lock things up. Cars are left with the doors unlocked and no one cares about looking the front door on buildings and many times their homes are unlocked. Example is that one person living in the building we are staying leaves his key in the door all the time. In fact one of the surprise things said by Russians as they visit Georgia is, “You don’t have to lock your doors, it is that safe!” Cool huh…

But like I said earlier, you have very young street urchins and they will flash there puppy dog eyes at you and even latch onto your legs as you walk and beg, beg, beg and beg some more. They are everywhere! Then you have to watch out for the pickpockets as they are everywhere also, but you just have to have your stuff properly taken care off. They look for tourists that are lost in a another world having fun. I have been there and had my time with pickpockets in Kiev…

Georgia is a fantastic and wonderful place to spend sometime looking around. The history is old as the hills! I would like to say more but Sveta and I have a big day planned and instead of business today we are sightseeing. We have a huge church to check out and the President’s Palace also is near by…

I will write more later and I already have over 500 photos of this wonderful city called Tbilisi, Georgia…
