I removed these from the main page as I don't believe it meets our goals. Looks like another way to add external links.

I added images by Mr Marko Petrovic, very talented photographer and he gave permission to use his photos on Wikitravel article Georgia. I copied his email and attached to each image in the Wikitravel shared page. Please see description there. You can find collection of amazing Georgian photos here: http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/Georgia/ Thanks. CanadianTraveler 10:30, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

Information about Russia-Georgia war
Russian troops are only in Samegrelo in Northwest Georgia (near Abkhasia) and they are doing nothing in thear , CAN WE REMOVE WARNING?
Questionable edits regarding Russian language in Georgia
Some very dubious edits keep cropping up over the years suggesting that Russian is no longer useful in Georgia, and that travelers can get by fine by speaking English with kids. This is ridiculous. Barring the mass murder of everyone over 30 in the country, I doubt so much has changed since I lived there in 2005, when about one in three people speaks Russian competently, and certainly any English ability on the part of schoolchildren was extremely limited, as there is a shortage of qualified English instructors. Some of the information being added is strictly nonfactual, like the notion that Russian language instruction was ever compulsory in Georgia... As a matter of fact, people are much more willing to speak Russian in the Caucasus than in the Baltics precisely because it was never mandatory. If you politely ask someone, უკაცრავად, რუსული იცით?, they will either shake their head no, or otherwise happily assist you.
It is also not useful to keep harping on the Russo-Georgian conflict ad nauseum. Travel in Georgia has little to do with it, and a lot more to do with friendly, hospitable people, delicious food, spectacular and diverse landscapes, and a unique culture and history predating the latest little conflict to the tune of 3500 years. Lets get back on topic.
