My new life in the Republic of Georgia

A retired American expat here. I've been living in Georgia since November 2015. I love it here! Here is some photos of my home and my new city Batumi. Batumi is Georgia's resort city on the Black Sea. It has a sub-tropical climate with palm trees and tropical vegetation. It also has something few if any places got. Snow capped mountains a few miles off the shore! I'll get some photos later.

I have same question as Boe.

And are there any Minarets in your area giving calls to prayer?
I know Orthodox Christian is majority religion, but still about 10% of population is Muslim.

And there is no sex with the women without a male family member present . . . right ??

And ? ........ 

You make that sound like that's 'bad' ....

Maxx doesn't live in the areas with many followers of Islam - but Turkey is close by - if that is what you seek ...  ( Russia is 11-15 percent "Muslim" ...and we don't read such questions about Minarets, there!)

And there is no sex with the women without a male family member present . . . right ??

You mean the husband, right ? ;)

The area Maxx lives in does indeed have a large Muslim population. I believe Batumi is about 25% Muslim.

Maxx-

Awesome pictures! I'm back in my room and had to take 5 and post this. I'm impressed as I can see 5 crane towers in the short scape you captured. Things must be going well in Georgia. That's a good sign! Downtown LA have about 25 active crane towers, 18 of which are ours and no indication of slowing down. Great chance we'll expand up NoCal soon too.

I wanted to ask you what those things are on the foreground that looks like encasements or metal cages on the grassy lawns? Looks like some kind of exhibit.

Good to see you seem to find your niche out there. Double up on the mojo, man!

I'll catch up when I get back to town later this week. Have fun!

Indeed !

Thanks for educating me ...

Looks like some small animal/bird exhibits.

My camera a Nikon B500 has a 40 X lense and 80 X digitally. Got to admire his physique for a man in his what... 60's or 70's? Amazing! I took this photo from my balcony about 300-400 meters away
