Though the place should (in theory) calm down soon, the Caucasus region, like hte Balkans, can be dangerous to travel in, especially during times of political strife. However, I'm sure that it won't stay bad for too much longer, and if it does then you wouldn't want to travel there anyways (just an optimist's point of view: the glass is one-quarter full, eh?)

Excellent point Magnifico, from what I have seen is free elections are going to be held, and the president has resigned...which is what the turmoil was about...so it looks like soon you can enjoy the sights of Georgia without worry of political upheaval
