Bits and Pieces

Bits of texts and emails that have come in over the past few days.



Will anyone be traveling to the US in the coming days? I have a letter that

desperately needs to be mailed from any place in the US …

Kind regards,



Dear Megobrebs—I’ ve been living in Tbilisi for about 4 years now and have never had a problem with the gas company, but this company apparently has instituted a draconian new policy that I wish to warn you about..


Right before New Year, two men from the gas company came to the door..thinking that they were just checking the the meter, I let them in. They proceeded to inform me that we had not paid our bill (it was due the day before) and they were there to cut off the gas! But because I have a small baby at home, they gave me a warning and left. Then this month, again we were a day late paying the bill, and this time two women came and turned off the gas, while I was in the middle of cooking dinner. To get it turned back on, you have to go to the KazTransGas office for your district, pay your bill and a 5 lari fine. You can then go home, remove the seal and turn it back on yourself. If you tamper with the seal before paying up, you are subject to a 500 lari fine.


Does anyone know if water is to be metered soon ? I quite enjoy my cheap water at the moment and would like to see the public reaction when the announce if they are introducing a new scheme...


Hello Sports Fans,

So it is now official. The best place to catch Super Bowl XLIV is at Betsy's Hotel.

In addition to the joys of watching the Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints shoot it out with Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts, football fans, friends and companions dragged along, and all the rest of you who are just looking for a party at 3 a.m. Monday morning will receive:



and chips

And your first beer free!
