Kanye West’s new album played quietly in the background and Dive bar was nicely filled with all kinds of people from all over the world. The unfiltered beer from a microbrewer in Rustavi tasted well and bar dog Sweetie and Inge’s puppy Lola were playing outside.
Although Inge and Tamar had not seen each other for at least a year, the conversation went like never before. Having worked together for a local NGO several years ago, the women discussed their previous work engagements, their future endeavors, and with this, the hard to miss in any conversation while residing in this omnishamble of politics: Caucasian politics.
And that is when they made a decision. It was once more time to start an analytical blogozine covering this intriguing area.
A region that is filled with a variety of mixed cultures. A rich history of combating kingdoms, invading empires and traveling tribes all resulting in a wild blend of ancient traditions, fierce and pride people, and a volatile eruptive political field.
Even in their cuisine, the Caucasian people are fiercely defending the origins of ‘their’ dish. Name for example adjapsandali. Even wikipedia disagrees in different languages on the original emergence of this colorful tasty vegetable mix.
Adjapsandali also means ‘everything mixed in one’ and is used as a reference to people being colorful.
Therefore, the dish perfectly describes the situation and its people in this region and could not be a better way to describe this new blog.
Welcome to Adjapsandali and enjoy the spicy analytical articles the blog will prepare for you.
