Tbilisi is beautiful and chaotic and busy and never boring. - Apr 10, 2017
Don't miss the opportunity to drive to Yerevan, Ushguli, Batumi, and, if you're up to it, Baku. You also need to eat a dozen Khinghali in one sitting and chase it down with a little cha cha! - Jul 17, 2014
Despite a few frustrations, Tbilisi is a great place to live, particularly for people who enjoy nature. - Oct 31, 2011
The hardest thing to get used to was the lingering Soviet mentality, especially among the older generations. They preferred being taken care of. The younger generation is trying to make their country a better place and runs into obstacles at every turn. Really frustrating is trying to buy things not sold in grocery stores. When we first arrived we wanted to buy a TV. We finally bought through Peter Justesen because every shop owner we visited had a mean look on his face like, "I dare you to try to buy something from me. You should feel honored I even let you in my store." Capitalism, the entrepreneurial spirit, etc., are hard to come by. - Jan 27, 2009
