05-08-2008 Tbilisi, Georgia km: 132,564

Aquí, estoy en Tbilisi, Georgia. Es una agradable ciudad en un valle y yo veo muchas iglesias bonitas. La gente está O.K. algunos de ellos son amistosos pero
no tienen suficiente educación. Parece pacifico para viajar
con excepción de algunas áreas en este momento. Es muy difícil que haya
amistad a los países vecinos a causa de problema historico de
religión diferente, diferentes razas y lenguas diferentes … Buena
suerte!

2008年8月6日 グルジア国トビリシ市より 132,564km

私のほうはただいま112カ国目のグルジアの首都トビリシに来ています。日本人旅行者の集まるトビリシ駅近くのネリダリの家という宿にとっていますが今年は内戦のせいか日本人の旅行者は少ないようです。しかし治安はいたって安全のように見受けられます。警察官達はたいてい日本人に親切に振舞ってくれます。ただ夜間は外国人を狙った泥棒や強盗達が通りを徘徊するらしく夜間は出歩かないようにしています。長かったイスラム教の国々から脱出し、旧ソビエトに入ると(アルメニア、グルジア)よくウォッカを地元の人たちからご馳走されることがあります。たまにはアルコールもいいものです。

トビリシのネリダリの家にて日本人自転車旅行家、山本弘さんに出会いましたので彼のブログを紹介します。「手のひらの中のアジア」 http://ameblo.jp/hylife/

これから明日アゼルバイジャンに向かいます。バクーを目指しています。アゼルバイジャンとウズベキスタンのヴィザは持っているのですが、そのほかの中央アジアのヴィザはまだ取れていません。バクーでうまく取れればよいのですが。ご意見、アドバイス、情報などお知らせください。

It is nice city in the valley and I saw many nice churches. People are O.K. some of them are friendly but they do not have enough education. Not many people speak English. But it seems peace for traveling except some area at this moment. There are quite difficult areas for make friendships to neighbour countries because of historical problem, different religion, different races and different languages… Good luck!
