Ben Sweeney’s Weblog

Got a Fulbright, living in Georgia for a year.

Update from Moscow

I’m still alive and in Moscow now.  I have news – I’m indeed going to Georgia soon.  I got word from the State Department and grants are resuming.  I am flying to Kyiv Tuesday, which has been my plan for a while, and from there I will be going to Tbilisi in about a week.

A lady at the embassy in Tbilisi has offered to reserve me a guest house for my first few nights in Tbilisi and then help me find a more permanent apartment.  I’ll keep you posted on my new life in Georgia.  On my train ride to Moscow, I had an amazing dream:  I was in the mountains in Georgia with a beard, wearing a white suit, eating shashlik, being important.  It felt incredible.

I have been writing updates for this and other places, but I have not gotten around to editing and posting them, but they will get posted somewhere at somepoint.
