(Some Guy-ishvili)   Farker's sister is teaching English in a rural village in the Republic of Georgia. He is going for a visit at the end of March. Any Farkers have recommendations on where to go/what to see?   (nationsonline.org) divider line 54

Not an unreasonable assumption. I have been to Hartsfield-Jackson airport and they could use some of Subby's sister's help.

Check out a Braves game if they're in town.
I know they suck. But I hear their stadium rocks

Nice stadium, but if a guy in an orange vest comes up to you in the parking lot after the game, he's not an attendant.  Farking panhandlers.

You guys seem to be confusing the state of Georgia with the country of Georgia.  The Republic of Georgia is a former Soviet republic.  Its capital city is Tblisi.  It is bordered on the west by the Black Sea.  The state of Georgia has nothing to do with the country.  Trust me, I'm almost positive on this one.

The only thing I can say is that they have stringent visa requirements and you kind of have to know when and where you are going to be.  They hold you accountable for EVERTHING.  It's not like "Yippee I got my ticket to anywhere in Russian greenlit, I can go anywhere I want whenever I want."

Just a quick look at ye old standby Wiki article, i'd say Mstkheta, the cave city of Vardzia, and a couple other UNESCO sites are there too.  And the Caucasus mountains look pretty badass.

Subby here.  How did I know banjo boy was gonna show up in this thread?  My wife and father (who has never been farther out of the US than Ontario) are going as well.  We have a few days planned in Tbilisi when we first arrive, and then we'll be in my sister's village, and wherever else we decide to go.  I don't know anyone who has been there, and my sister hasn't had much chance to leave her village, so I thought I'd summon the power of Fark.

/Also have a a 12 hour layover in Munich, if anyone has any suggestions (in addition to beer)

According to the State department and the Georgian consulate, a visa is not required for US citizens, just a valid passport.  That may not be enough to get into South Ossetia or Abkhazia, but I plan on staying well away from both areas.

I'll never go back to Georgia is my favorite Count Basie jam.

I'm just saying if you want to wander outside of Georgia there are things to be considered.

It's been a decade since I've been, so my info's a bit hazy. But do try the khachapuri. The recipe's different in different regions, but I never met khachapuri that wasn't awesome. I'm told the wine isn't terribly sophisticated (I'm normally a beer person.) but I really enjoyed it. The people are beyond delightful. I'd had less than 48 hours notice when I went, so I didn't have much time to pick up any of the language. But everywhere I ended up, people were unfailingly generous with their time and patient with my inability to communicate.

I'm assuming your sister will give you all the usual warnings about where you can drink the water and how driving in Tbilisi is absolutely beyond batshiat crazy. Heed them. Heed the ever living fark out of them.

I always want to go to Gori, with the Stalin home/museum. I understand its still there, in all its Soviet-era glory. And be sure to eat, Georgian food is awesome!

Looks more like Thai.

/also, to avoid confusion and the obvious jokes, the Republic of Georgia probably should have used the name its citizens call it, which is Sakartvelo

Thanks man. Yeah she did say to stay away from the water pretty much everywhere, but apparently bottled water in available everywhere, including her podunk village. I'm greatly looking forward to the food and the wine.

Yeah, she did say we won't go hungry. I guess the whole village is planning a big party for us. Her host family has a vineyard, and makes their own wine. My wife will be five months pregnant while we're there, so I'll have to drink her share too, I suppose.

ski9600: It looks like Sochi, Russia is not far.  Maybe check out the town and the construction on the venues for the Olympics next year this time?


I'd love to, but it looks like the only reasonable way to get there is through Abkhazia, which is a breakaway region supported by Russia, similar to South Ossetia. Apparently Georgia takes a dim view of foreigners entering Abkhazia via Russia, even and especially for a return trip to the rest of Georgia.
