Disclaimers:  I do not speak for the American government, the Georgian government, any organization I’ve ever worked for (or want to work for in the future), any of my teachers, my friends or relatives, or, for that matter, anyone I met once on the subway.  All opinions expressed in this blog are mine, and mine alone.  For that matter, I reserve the right to change my opinion when I learn new things.

You’ll notice that this blog is fairly anonymous, and that I have not specified exactly where or for which organization I work.  That’s on purpose.  While some posts will be about fun things that I’ve done, particularly those things travel-related, I see the blog as a place to share my love of Georgia.  To that end, I’ll be writing about current events, history, and my impressions of Georgian culture,  as well as sharing  my opinions on books and films about the region.  Hopefully I’ll also be able to provide you with some recipes for Georgian food and a platform to share your ideas and opinions about these things.  In general, I believe that “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”.  This doesn’t mean I won’t point out the bad things about Georgia, but it does mean that sometimes there will be periods of radio silence as I work on being able to discuss issues constructively.  Or sometimes I’m just busy, and don’t think you’ll be interested in reading a Postcard from: My Office
