    Don't tell the Georgians you said their country was in Asia, you might
    get in trouble! They certainly consider themselves Europeans, in line
    with their culture and religion. As for the geography, atlases differ.
    The following is from a 1937 novel "Ali and Nino" about the region, the
    setting of this introduction is actually about 1905: "Some scholars look
    on the area south of the Caucasian mountains as belonging to Asia, while
    others, in view of Transcaucasia's cultural evolution, believe that this
    country should be considered part of Europe." The question is still an
    open one.
