Hi all... My name is Dimitry, Dima or Dito, as you wish :) I was born up here in Tbilisi about 23 years ago and feel crazy in love with this country and people here. At the current stage of my life my interest is to gather as more information as I can, manly from the history of my country and our neighbours as well as from the history of the world. I graduated Tbilisi State University as Orientalist (it's a hard word u rarely hear somewhere, it means that I used to study history, traditions, religion and culture of Asia and Arabic literature language as well)

I have good organizational skills and as well as experience for more than for years in hospitality management and services p.s. don't forget that I'm only 23 years old:) I want to share or my experience and hospitality with you and welcome you to this beautiful and amazing country called Sakartvelo (but You know it as Georgia).
