Tbilisi calling…

April 5, 2015

Right now I am in Georgia on a small introductory visit to get a better sense of the country and get a feel for the regional geo-politics. Georgia is extremely keen to join NATO and the EU and is making much progress in these directions.   

 You perhaps cannot blame them after a trip to the “Soviet occupation of Georgia, 1921 – 1991” exhibition at the National history museum. A recent (5 day) conflict with Russia in 2008 and recent Russia land grabs in Ukraine spur on this ambition.  More reports later – just thought I’d check in to let you know I wasn’t slacking off.

    OK, pal–taking you off the slacker list.

    haha! Thanks Ron. I actually sometimes think I am just writing this blog for you – didn’t want you getting restless at the lack of input… 😉
