Transport in GeorgiaThe main long-distance transport is the "marshrutka". Go as far as filling the biggest chance to go somewhere this morning, late afternoon is always necessary to know when the last flight and not the fact that it will be. The most inexpensive form of transport. At the direction of departure is different from different angles. Didube Metro station, bus dispatched to the north and west to Mtskheta, Kazbegi, Batumi, and so on. Metro Station Samgori, in the south and east - for example in Kakheti (Telavi, Sighnaghi). If you travel to Batumi, it is best to train.
InternetI bought a sim card from MAGTI, Service to 5Gb of traffic a month, just for 42 GEL. Covering 3G, in all the cities where I've been working steadily, the rate for the mobile Internet a normal, came to 150 kb / s. It was convenient to use OpenStreetMap (OsmAnd) on my android, map traced in detail, there is a POI.
