Gavin is blogging from Georgia. At the moment he’s on the tourist trail in Tblisi, but he’s headed for the Caucusus in a few days. I would encourage you to check in with his blog as he does the travelling/photographing thing of the country, which bears very obvious signs of the recent conflict with Russia:
I guess getting the tourist thing out of the way first is a good thing. But even while doing the tourist things there are signs of the recent conflict. We passed a communications antenna damaged by Russian bombing (no good photos), and a few places where refugees from Ossetia (will be returning to some of those later) are temporarily residing. One school down the road is housing refugees, with the inevitable images of clothes drying on the school railings.
