Balcony puzzle solved!

FullSizeRender (2)

The answer to yesterday's puzzle - Georgia! Some of you solved the puzzle very fast, but most were thrown off by the English language sign on the building. Your answers and logic were interesting to me, so thanks for participating in the game!

The photo of the balcony I showed yesterday was taken in Batumi, Georgia, one of the most popular tourist spots in the country. I will write a report about this place eventually, but it was my least favorite of all the cities I visited in Georgia. Where there are many foreign guests, Georgia does a decent job of having signs in both English and Russian. Kudos to officials for that, as they seem to understand the value of tourism and foreign dollars thrown into the local economy.

I look at the photo in this post, and am immediately transported back to this magical path. A gentle breeze rustled through the autumn leaves, the shades of red, gold and green dancing to create a sort of kaleidoscope impact. The scent of fresh-turned Earth permeated the air, and pure romance floated about. I wanted to reach and hug someone, grab a hand, but no one was there...:))

Just pure beauty! This pathway was quite nice and in good condition, which cannot always be said for Georgia. Many streets and walkways require utmost caution due to broken or uneven trails, missing or displaced cobblestones, and just general wear and tear of ancient cities.

Wishing everyone a colorful and relaxing evening! :)

Nope. I'm not biased and I don't have any myths about this country. Don't forget we lived in the same state more than 200 years. I'm personally partly from the city called Georgiyevsk where in 1783 Georgian tzar begged mother russia of protectorate.

Well, I have not heard you say one positive thing about Georgia. You do not even like khacupuri or khinkali? :))

Take a look at that strange looking thing. When I was I kid I played around it hundred times. I had no idea what this means. Now I know that this is a stella in honor of taking Georgia under Russian care.

How many italian restaurants do you have in the US? I think a lot. Even your famous pizza is an italian thing. But here in Russia we have the same thing with caucasian cuisine. and we also adopt some of their dishes in our cuisine.

Georgia does not want to be under Russia's care...

It's not about what they want.. it is about how they treat other people. They betrayed those who helped them when they asked for help. They fought with those who didn't agree with them (I mean Abkhazia and South Ossetia).
