Whine and Cheese

On slow news days, rather than cat-in-a-tree stories, local journalists here rely on foreigners doing something funny. So that's why we were all pretty sure that today's event, in which we held a traditional Georgian supra outside the Russian embassy to protest the Russians' ban on Georgian wine, would probably get us some good media coverage. Sure enough, right there on the nightly news following Nino Burjanadze's speech before the Duma, but preceding coverage of floods in Western Georgia, were a bunch of goofy foreigners having a dinner party on the street and getting sloshed on homemade wine in the middle of the day to support Georgia's wine industry.

Got some fun photos of my own, but thought I'd share the local news coverage before the link goes stale and the video clip is taken down.
