Saakashvili’s greatest dreams have come true and Tbilisi’s hybrid of exoticness and refinement has reached the tastemaker’s class. You no longer have to worry about getting hit up for a bribe or randomly shot. Tourists come to Tbilisi, and more importantly they overwhelmingly love the place. It is the closest thing to the last unspoiled place in Europe. There is a new Tbilisi that is dynamic, on the vanguard of culture, and they have first class accommodation for all the posh journalists that have come to marvel in the fact that Tbilisi is not some Soviet backwater.
here it is also very interesting how georgian journalist would like to present georgia and tbilisi, independently of what’s the reality. i know what’s the reality. (: people are creatures that believe stories they tell about themselves.
