Gori (not Glory) 

 A few pictures from Gori. 

The Stalin museum is well worth the overpriced ticket and entry into the “wagon.” Not pictured is Stalin’s fur coat to the dismay of “too many muskrats” … And apparently my guide, a young man troubled by the fact that Stalin never wore this coat that all the animals died for. Interestingly, he seemed less concerned about the number of people executed or imprisoned during a similar time period. “It is not so much.”

A less well known Gori delight is the ethnography museum. Much more reasonably priced, and brilliant! Not overwhelming, perfect size.  My guide (below!) was the greatest gift a museum could offer. An American studies student who indulged my questions and promptly added me on Facebook.
