Abandoned Lab

Posted: under Uncategorized.



Abandoned Lab, originally uploaded by Wordyeti.

The Resonance Newspaper here in Tbilisi once had its door nailed/welded shut by the government to try to put them out of business. Apparently, they just crawled thru the windows. Now they’re located in this building – formerly the site of a bioweapons lab. I’m guessing nobody really wants to kick down the door now.

To the left of this shot is the office cat/mascot, a friendly little yellow cat named Anthrax (I think – they could have just been messing with me). The staff here was smart & eager to learn; I felt bad when the power went out as I was wrapping up. As Eliso Chapidze, the intrepid investigative reporter groused, “How can we do all the internet stuff you taught us when we have no electricity?”
