Hi Dan, I enjoy reading your blog to keep up on Georgis. I was there a few times but last visit was in 1992. I have added a link to your blog on my blog http://seattlephotographer.wordpress.com/

Would you add a link my website http://danielsheehan.com/ to your blogroll? there are photos from the revolution of 1991-92 there in the news section.
