The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Georgia. This is real; no photoshop.

Marshrutkas. The most common form of public transportation.  They travel between cities, towns and villages picking up people along their route. You can catch them at terminals in the towns/ cities, or flag one down from the side of the road. Some mini vans are comfortable rides with comfortable seats, but most are vehicles that would be condemned in the States, with seats that are barely bolted down. During rush hour, they driver literally packs people on like cattle. People sit on laps and stand belly to backs. If you are already on the marsh, you complain that the driver stopped again. But if you are the one who has been standing on the side of the road in the rain or snow for God knows long, you thank the driver profusely and squeeze into the clown car.

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Georgians work with what they have.

  1. This posting reminds me of flying on Air America in Vietnam when some passengers would be holding chickens and pigs on their laps.
