Happy Independence Day!
May 26 commemorates Georgia’s independence in 1918 from the Russian Empire and the short-lived independent Democratic Republic of Georgia (for a little more information, read my Super-Brief History of Georgia, or, you know, Wikipedia. Or a book. Books are good…) The bulk of today’s celebrations occurred in Kutaisi with the opening of the new Parliament, but there was quite a party down on Rustaveli. I’ll do another post later when I have my camera cord to share some pictures, but the weather was beautiful and I saw Misha! (Misha would be more formally known as President Saakashvili)
Here‘s my follow-up post.
