    Leave a Mars bar on the dash.

    Har, har.


    God help any kid who was unfortunate enough to have one in the family when we were growing up.

    Indeed...it is.

    I have seen so-called Russian Blue cats here in Oz, but that cat really LOOKS quite different....in the same subtle ways that Russian people look different from us. A parallel path of evolution, and exotic genetic input for a few thousand years, I guess.

    Nice report, SP. Are the Georgians Russian or Greek Orthdox adherents in the main?

    Noted also the photo/s of the mosque, so I guess there is a Muslim component of the population.

    It looks a pretty cold & bleak countryside or is that just due to the time of your visit?

    If you have more information about this trip, let her rip!

    Thanks for sharing.

    It looks like a CGI cat from a movie that is about to open its mouth and start speaking.

    Great thread Punter. Looks a top spot to do some sightseeing. The weather decent that time of year? It doesn't look too hot or too cold. No snow anyway from what I saw. Looks good to me.

    One of them in particular is (in some fonts) the numeral 7 but in mirror image. Along with Yor Yak, Ngo Ngu , and Gor Gai.

    2000 years of history and 4 plus civilizations, what's there not to be fussed about?
    the serenity of the blue mosque and the building sight of the hagia Sophia?
    Life on Istakal and great food cheaper than Thailand

    each to their own and great thread but...
    like my wife complaining about Rome being old
    we won it at wemberlee
    we on it in gay paree...
