Presentation of May 17 Issue National Geographic (Georgia) Magazine

новый номер NG ГрузияOn April 29, Vitya Lyagushkin and I had the honor to attend the presentation of the May (2017) issue of National Geographic (Georgia) Magazine, as well as the premiere screening of the film The Genius about Albert Einstein, to which the issue of the magazine is also dedicated. To our regret, we understood little from the movie, since it was in Georgian, but appreciated the excellent work of the magazine team and the high level of organization of the event.

The presentation had been held in the inner courtyard of the National Museum of Georgia. The wine was magnificent, the buffet was wonderful, the atmosphere was friendly.

Dear new National Geographic (Georgia) Editor-in-Chief Natia Khuluzauri, thank you for inviting us, it was a big pleasure to be there!
