Wine is back on the bill in nation of Georgia; Russia to upgrade its rail system

From France 24.

Russia banned Georgian wine for a while beginning in 2008 but it’s baaaack!

From Deutsche Welle.

Russia is planning to pour pots of money into modernizing its rail system, including the Asian portion. Makes me wonder what changes will be noticed on the Trans-Siberian route, a train ride I would really love to experience.
