From the whimsical and wacky to the memorable and moving, join our Tamada Tales blogger Giorgi Lomsadze for a video series on the overlooked aspects of daily life in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, and how those lifestyles are changing.
In this episode, see how Georgians meet the future in a coffee cup - whether for marriage plans or for Euro-Atlantic integration plans, Georgia’s fortunetellers have all the answers.
