დაუთმე გზა ქვეითს, არ დაგაგვიანდება

dautme_gza_kveitsთითქმის ყოველდღე ყველას სადღაც გვეჩქარება, ამიტომაც ხშირად ვერ ვამჩნევთ სხვა ადამიანებს. ამ სიჩქარის გამო გზას არ ვუთმობთ მოხუცებს, დედებს ბავშვებით, ერთმანეთს და ა.შ. თუმცა 1 წუთით მანქანის გაჩერება და ხალხის გატარება არ დაგვაგვიანებს. ამიტომაც დაუთქმე გზა ქვეთს, არ დაგაგვიანდება!

Sukhishvili Perform The Pink Panther

Who does not love Henry Mancini’s The Pink Panther Theme? I think we all do. It is one of those eternal tunes that always makes one smile. If you are a fan of the theme and Georgian music then you should check this video out. I went to Art Gene today, an annual folk festival that brings musicians from Georgia and now from other countries as well  (Latvia, Poland, Madagascar, etc.).

Sukhishvili, Georgian national ballet, was one of the performers. Sukhishvili opened its show with The Pink Panther Theme and gave it a Georgian touch. Here’s the video:

Flash flood kills 5 in Georgia

Flash flood has killed at least 5 in Georgia’s capital – Tbilisi on Sunday, May 13. A heavy rain caused river Mtkvari to swell that swept through several districts of  the capital. According to latest reports heaviest damage was taken at Tbilisi’s Ortachala district where 5 died and 3 are still missing. Electricity was cut off for several thousands of Tbilisians, and according to the official sources 8 villages are isolated in Georgia’s Dusheti region.

And finally here’s a video that shows what was on air on Georgian TV channels while the rain and flood was sweeping Tbilisi. As said above, RealTV was the only channel that was live from the scene until it stopped to rain.
