In Georgia

It has been so long since I have updated this blog that I have been putting off an update. It's just very overwhelming to think about. But there is no law that says I have to post about everything we do (and in fact, it's probably better not to), so here is a photo Cliff's Notes of our almost-three-weeks in Tbilisi.

We arrived in Tbilisi on schedule, but without our bags, which spent the night in Moscow. My suitcase arrived the next day, sans my jewelry case (yes, I know I should have put it in my carry-on ... and now I am out my beautiful Middle Eastern gold jewelry and my favorite Russian egg pendant :sob:) and the Coach badge holder I was given as a going-away gift by a friend in Moscow.

We have a beautiful house on a hill with a nice view of the city. Not going to post a picture of the outside (I know my security responsibilities, thankyouverymuch), but here is one of our living room windows. Yes, that is a cow. More on that later.

We've done some biking.

We've eaten some gelato.

We've done some sightseeing (this is Mtskheta, the spiritual capital of Georgia, about a 15-minute drive from our house).

We've learned that Georgians give the Russians a run for their money when it comes to the art of posing for photos.

We've visited the zoo ... and decided not to return. This hippo was swimming in a filthy vat of sewage.

Natasha celebrated a nameday.

Jeremy took a trip where he ate good food ...

 ... and saw cool stuff ...

... including this view of the sunset on the Black Sea.  Who, me, jealous?

More later.


  1. Love the pictures!!! i need to be good and update my blog too. I just need to get more pictures, i am bad at taking pictures recently. Hm, maybe it's because i've been stuck in my house for the last month.

    oh, and Masha, i think you should start learning how to pose like Georgians... or Russians. It will make your life better :)

  2. Wow! Georgia really IS pretty. And the girls, oh, they are adorable!!! I can't believe how much hair Z has grown in!


Thanks for stopping by!
