Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]
Week 74 of travel….
The hostel’s running a nice $3.62 per night.
It’s pretty cheap…even when I go out.
Travel insurance: $5.03 per day.
VPN: $0.26 per day.
Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.
This blog: $0.31 per day.
Skype: $0.08 per day.
Chase Sapphire Reserve: $0.41 per day.
Pimsleur’s Russian: $0.71 per day.
On Saturday, I bought a game called The Expression Amrilato: $21.39. I don’t usually buy anime style games, but this one claims to teach the players Esperanto. Being the huge language nerd I am, I couldn’t resist. Will I learn Esperanto? Time will tell.
On Thursday, I actually left the hostel and went to the თბილისი (Tbilisi) Botanical Gardens: $1.45. The ridiculous 36C degree (97F) weather didn’t make it very pleasant, but it wasn’t too bad next to the waterfall. So…winning? Not really, but we’ll go with that.
So not too bad. On a side note: the protests continue, but they’ve been peaceful so it’s fine. It was just the first night that got crazy. For anyone wondering, Georgia is completely safe. It’s actually safer than most Western countries. So don’t believe any news you might hear saying otherwise. See you all next week….
