Georgia is the only place I have ever been robbed in broad daylight (of only $10!) but still, I remember it as a very European place, with Tbilisi one of the prettiest (if poor) towns I have seen, broad streets, nice houses, delightful churches and all with road signs in a script out of a science fiction film. The countryside and the heritage it offers is no less appealing, though one wonders how many mini states will end up emerging from here...
Highlight: Tree-lined streets of Tbilisi.
