Tall person told me last year that the Georgian parliament is going to move from the capital Tbilisi. He said that a futuristic legislative complex costing $34-million is being built.
On my walk today I thought I had stumbled across the new parliament complex.
I must admit it was not what I had expected. It does not look very futuristic. However, I do appreciate that $34-million dollars doesn’t buy much these days.
When I pointed this out to the tall person he smiled and told me that this building is a shop. The new parliament building is being built in Georgia’s second city, Kutaisi, some 220 kilometers to the west of Tbilisi.
Ah, so the nation’s lawmakers have not re-located to my neighborhood.
Hmm. Perhaps this shop ought to consider changing its name. Otherwise members of parliament might be confused and come here instead of going to Kutaisi.
