Off to Tbilisi, Georgia for the photo today. Georgia is not well known but has been an important crossroad on the east-west routes for centuries. Home to more than 100 different ethnic groups, it has a population of about 1.4 million people. It became independent from the Soviet Union in 1991.
ALL PHOTOS ON THIS SITE ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.

I just read on MSN news about a good, fun job, a water slide tester. “An employment opportunity as a resort chain’s waterslide tester has fired up the interwebs. First Choice has a Facebook page dedicated to the available role of “Slide Tester” that will see the chosen one test water parks for a living for six months as they visit SplashWorld resorts across Europe and North Africa. This is one job application where describing yourself as “fun-loving” is actually relevant. Five shortlisted applicants will compete in a final challenge at a SplashWorld resort for the gig, which certainly beats the usual final job interview hell. [Source] ”
Not a bad job there.!!!!
The streets of Tbilisi, Georgia for the photo today, a dreary scene from the streets below the parliament. Not much colour and not much life, but a city scene.
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort, Norefjell.

Some dramatic lighting before a storm makes this building stand out (and it was quite a storm that followed !!). Believed to be a Sheraton hotel in the city of Batumi on the Black Sea coast of Georgia. Georgia has a population of about 4.7 million people and became independant from Russia in 1991. Mountains rise to over 5000m. The name of the present-day capital, Tbilisi, is derived from the Georgian word for warm. Perhaps the most famous Georgian was Josif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, known as Stalin or man of steel. Born in 1879, Stalin became the second leader of the USSR (after Lenin). Stalin led the USSR until his death in 1953.
