usual way to start the day...and wrong!

Beware the Lonely Planet

The LP is off more than usual, not just for Tbilisi, but for Georgia as a whole. The prices are wrong, mostly they are about half of what you will pay, sometimes they are way off, as they are for the Stalin Museum in Gori. The hotel info is way, way, way off the mark, especially for Batumi. (See my tips on that.) The maps aren't accurate. And, the warning and danger section, especially regarding walking after dark, is so dire as to be laughable. In fact, I felt as though Tbilisi was a relatively safe place. It felt far less dangerous, especially after dark, than most US cities.

Ok. So, things change. But, in a rapidly changing place like Georgia, it's really important to get current info. Thanks to all the VTers who warned/advised me prior to this trip, so I knew what warnings were grounded in, well, reality.

So, if you're like me, and plan some of the day's activies with coffee, cigs, and a guidebook, you've been warned!
