To be honest, I cannot believe the quality of the hotels I am staying at. They look absolutely amazing and thanks to the exchange rate to Georgian lari and the weak Greek economy I can afford to stay at places that I would not be able to afford in the United States. It is worth checking out the links to these hotels.
Currently the exchange rate is from the dollar to the Georgian lari is $1 to 2.46 GEL. The exchange rate from the dollar to the Euro is $1 = .91 Euro. Which is the better value?
The one thing that is not obvious in the schedule below is that I will have the chance to visit Munich, Germany for a few hours before we depart to Munich. During this time, I will be visiting the Marienplatz and specifically the Rathaus-Glockenspiel.
Once we get to Georgia, the itinerary is pretty much set for us.
Here are the links to some of the places from itinerary: Old Tbilisi, US Embassy in Georgia, Hotel Cruise to meet with people from U.S. embassy, and Shemoikhede Genacvale GMC Group.
When I go to co-teach in Akhaltsikhe, I will be visiting the local school and participating in panel discussions with teachers from around the area including some who teach at Armenian school. Here is my itinerary for Akhaltsikhe. When I am not in school, I will be visiting Rabati Castle, Sapara Monastary, and Vardzia
If you're in New York City you can visit the Old Tbilisi Garden, a restaurant with Georgian cuisine.
