A Change in Breakfast Speakers
When the last-minute inability of the scheduled speaker was announced, Lyuba Hubbard volunteered to give an impromptu talk on Georgia, a Soviet Socialist Republic, and her home for many years.
Lyuba was born in Moscow but subsequently moved to Georgia, an incredibly beautiful country with the Caucasus Mountains to the North and bordering on the Black Sea in the west., where the climate can be fairly temperate. Russian Georgia is about half the size of the State of Georgia in the USA but has approximately the same population. It is the southern most tip of the Soviet Union. International Monetary Fund meetings were held in Georgia during the 1990s for which Lyuba was one of the interpreters.. Their presence in Georgia was a mixed blessing of serious intent and over indulgence.
