Photo a day: March 10, 2011

This is view you get if you walk about 30 feet down my alley at night. Looking back towards downtown Tbilisi, and directly into the chic neighborhood of Vake, you would expect to see well-lit buildings in the densely populated area. But, in fact, the only three things that stand out are three of Saakashvili’s brightest vanity projects. This Eiffel-tower-style glittering applied to the TV tower, the new glowing ferris wheel in Mtasminda Park, and one of the huge new “transparent” police stations, which straddles the road between Saburtalo and Vake.

The priorities are pretty clear.
