My ride home from work.

We have often talked about how we travel around this lovely country but I don’t think we have actually shown you.  This short posting will attempt to do this.

First, what types of public transportation exists in the country of Georgia?  In Georgia you will find all the common modes of public transportation common in America,

taxies,

If you have a Taxi sign you can put it on your car and take passengers.

Sometimes buses can be quite crowded:

This is a new bus but still packed to the gills.  Believe it or not more will be getting on.

Lastly we have the minibus or “Marshrutka”:

When I travel to work each day I take either the bus or Marshrutka  dependjng on the weather and the time of day.

See this link for more information on Marshrutkas:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshrutka

This post is to give you the experience of me traveling home on one of the Marshrutkas.  The video is about 15 minutes long and feel free to skip through it.  There are a couple of places you should view, they are found at 9:00 and 9:50 minutes into the video.  I hope you enjoy the ride.
