fctvnidntnhgsb just arrived in Kutaisi, #georgia
gmacvus3mo
Hey guys! How is the nomad community going here? Moving to Tbilisi for 1.5 months from 30 of March.
kxislvt3mo
Do you have any meetups or something?
imgagox3mo
Yeah, too bad ๐Ÿ˜„
occripenni3mo
sqrhngwt there is actually. Paging buuwoynwv
jkkfynur3mo
aytamzog I've stopped organizing meetups. but I'm happy to meet ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm probably not the funnest guy to hang out with (i'm here with family and mostly working), but I maybe can give out couple of pointers and share some of my 4 month experience here :)
nwdrytf3mo
wedddagxfrttgtw Thanks!, but I donโ€™t use Facebook! ๐Ÿ˜„ Is there something on meetup.com|meetup.com or similar places?
tawdiec3mo
haysmskyd This is awesome! Iโ€™d love to meet you!
elxjbuv3mo
Letโ€™s arrange that at April. Do you have telegram?
bemytlhztppszg3mo
Not that Iโ€™m aware of
jmragsxfiklcy3mo
abplgddmljffio just arrived in Tbilisi, #georgia
cgdmrjbct3mo
qhcjauhr Check out Lokal Tbilisi.. I know they were organizing a few events
zbozawm3mo
gedfjgrbol Thanks!
mxtkkvz3mo
gffiizny just arrived in Tbilisi, #georgia
ihzbmdh3mo
Todayโ€™s Georgia announced closing borders for all foreigners.
woybgnt3mo
Cancel my accomodaiton and trying to change the tickets. Be careful if you planned to go there.
fjxtiwva3mo
They announced today, but on 18 it would actually take full effect.
cjfmttuo3mo
Sorry that we will not actually meet llqusfkk ๐Ÿ™‚
ekengjxh3mo
At least soon.
qrkaxju3mo
Yeaah me too, I hope will meet when itโ€™s over. Take care!
wkgofomi3mo
But on a positive note, local currency is going down in value way faster than USD/EUR.

So Georgia gets way cheaper now (and stores are full)
thfiaxn3mo
Yeah rubles as well ๐Ÿ˜„ Because of oil + virus. I actually earn money on the cancellation of Airbnb, because russian rubles went down so much and I paid in EUR
nidbeiwi3mo
Anyone knows why the forex/mastercard rate of USD/GEL is still about 2.78? While the central bank of Georgia has 2.99
stxggvzloceucv2mo
evening ๐Ÿ™‚
qdoxmdwe2mo
xtlewley2mo
Haha, it gets cheaper everyday ๐Ÿ˜„
hbajkhre2mo
Does anyone also feel that Georgia might be one of the best places on Earth to wait out the pandemic? ๐Ÿ˜„ So happy I decided to stay here and not somewhere else..
xxurfen2mo
Well, Bali is pretty good as well.
jtqskwp2mo
Or maybe Iโ€™m telling it myself because I didnโ€™t manage to reach Georgia. They closed borders before my flight.
btqqcnn2mo
๐Ÿ˜„
fskrncr2mo
Does they extend all visas if you staying during the virus?
hjewtfcf2mo
I think the visa-free period is 365 days for most nationalities. Should be enough I hope.
ibdjvfk2mo
Oh, right! I forgot about it
tghqiksjnp2mo
What makes you think that Georgia is the safest place? Are people there taking social distancing seriously and everyone is staying in?
eitwpyxsve2mo
I just ran across this news today. I know that Georgia is a pretty religious country, so assuming that this isn't too uncommon, churches might be at the center for new infection clusters.
cykixqfmlq2mo
On top of that, I don't think there is widespread testing, which means that there are likely many people who are infected but don't know.
osehrfdq2mo
I didn't say the word "safest", I said "one of the best" (I am also taking in account the low cost of life under quarantine and the number of decent services you can still get like proper food delivery, for instance + a possibility to stay for the whole year without a visa). But to me it also feels like the quarantine and social distancing measures were imposed here at the very right time, earlier than in most countries (if we assume that we trust the official numbers). And they seem to try to follow the South Korean strategy, tracking down every single contact of infected individuals. People gathering for prayers are now requested to stay outside churches and keep their distance, similar rules in supermarkets and pharmacies.
But the question of how widespread is the testing is the key question, I agree. That's what the death rate (increased or unchanged) should reveal eventually. Overall, just trying to be optimistic ๐Ÿ˜„
cvxojwse2mo
Will be a full quarantine starting from tomorrow, canโ€™t go out from 21.00 till 6.00 a morning.
phfoktvi2mo
I would say that Georgia indeed handled everything really nice. They started testing all arrivals in airport really early, they didnโ€™t had virus spreading in a country for a while and only recently (less than a week ago) first case appeared. Nobody died. No panic, people willingly isolated themselfs and younger generation is being careless.

People told me, that epidemiologists have been on this case for months already and directly consulting government how to act properly.
fqyzhqmdwq2mo
that is really interesting to hear. iโ€™ve been reading more about churches and temple flaunting the rules, but maybe thatโ€™s more the exception than the norm. what about the subway? itโ€™s super-crowded in Tbilisi every time I rode it.
vapbgcih2mo
cpxpumzzhef most of the public transportation was closed already some time ago. those marshutkas (very full all the time also) are not operating as well.
ohjlzqiuux2mo
Oh wow that is pretty serious. So how do people get around now? Taxis don't seem that safe either
onnqwwnq2mo
some busses have been operating and taxiโ€™s also.
icsdohvt2mo
they recommend to sit in the back with windows open in a taxi ๐Ÿ˜„
nxrdsrzabs2mo
Hmm. I guess that is different from the taxis in Asia where it's full blast AC and closed in environment, so maybe it's okay.
aczrdgonnl2mo
Interesting to see how different countries react. I'm in Romania and from what I'm told, still many don't take it seriously. I personally haven't been out
beklcnemen2mo
Same with Bulgaria. But they have much fewer cases than Romania.
pbdqgapv2mo
My other options โ€” Estonia and Thailand. Have been handling it way worse than Goergia.
jvmgquaf2mo
twmszqexutx number of cases is irrelevant number, since highly dependant on testing.:)
vxvhouycfh2mo
I know...
kbryditc2mo
I usually watch โ€œnumber of deathsโ€ to have a sense how bad everything is ๐Ÿ™‚
eoyifrfvnu2mo
Both seem to be testing about the same so that's why I brought it up
mylfrmkijd2mo
44 vs 8
trropqtdsq2mo
I happen to spend a bit of time in both countries, so that's why I find it curious
cpyuiogmiw2mo
Romania is at a disadvantage due to the Italian connection so maybe that's it
lgejrfq24d
It seems Georgia openning the borders from 1 of July! ๐Ÿคž
sircosf24d
Maybe Iโ€™m finally going ๐Ÿ˜„
pvhglsq23d
thats one of the first countries which announced to open the borders!
meftudf23d
Yep!
qiixilafb12d
Yes !!
pangnewzm12d
Anyone been in Signagi? (Currently planning my georgia trip)
poumcwl12d
Iโ€™m still waiting 15 of June when they open everything for local tourists
qddqxqg12d
And 1 of July to see how it works ๐Ÿ™‚
funiyel12d
And then gonna plan the trip
zriuhjl12d
