Bidzina and Coyotes

Misha Pandarast!
Yesterday, I took a travel voucher granted by the Tbilisi City Mayor and enjoyed five-lari amusement which did not last longer than five minutes; finally it turned into an aggression of an ordinary voter when bus # 15 running to my house pulled up at the bus-station overcrowded as it usually happens in the rush-hour. I could not even step on the bus not to say anything about getting into it. Mini-buses # 193, 73 and 109 also passed me overcrowded, though traveling by them costs 80 tetri.

Before I Am Arrested during Live-Broadcasting
As is usually the case, I listened to President Saakashvili’s February 11th parliamentary address because my profession requires me to obtain information from all sources, analyze the data and then make some conclusions regarding the ongoing events. However, listening to Saakashvili’s speech has long since lost its meaning for me.

IDPs Waiting for Trucks
Eviction of IDPs seems to have already finished and moaning of people in the compact settlements of IDPs in Tbilisi is not heard any longer. However, another part of IDPs still lives in the expectation of disaster. They know that one day – today or tomorrow – the police officers with truncheons, trucks and yellow buses will approach their yards too.
Grandly Blenched Eyes
If we follow the terminology of the Georgian leading TV company “Rustavi 2”, 2011 started with grand concerts.
