მიესალმები საქართველოში (Hello Georgia!)

Dear readers,

I’m heading off to Georgia (the one next to Russia, Armenia, Turkey and Azerbaijan and NOT the state in the US!) tomorrow morning on a field trip as part of my Masters in Humanitarian Action programme. We have a tight packed schedule which includes visiting state media, United Nations Offices, the European Commission, the Dutch Embassy and visits to many international NGOs such as Oxfam, the Norwegian and Dutch Refugee Councils, Action Against Hunger and many more. I’m seriously excited and think it’s going to be a pretty amazing and eye-opening view into what could well be my future career! 

We won’t have internet access so this blog will be pretty quiet over the next 10 days! Come back then for my trip review, photos and what I hope will be an interesting insight into a country not a lot of people know much about! If you’re planning to travel there, I suggest you check out this interesting post and guide by my friend Megan.

Thanks for stopping by!

Janet …AKA Journalist on The Run :)

        you should make it 2-3 posts. I find that when I exceed 800 words people dont read my stuff.

        Yeah..I think I will have to!! Especially considering some days were so filled with adventure they might deserve a post of their own! ;)

    They have found traces of settlements one to three miles underwater around the rim of the Black Sea esp NW part. Some feel ice melt last Ice Age made sea level rise to present level which gives credence to Bible flood story but would have occurred 10,000 years prior. Seems flood story universal to distinct cultures that part of world.
