Lion of Ajara
the Governor’s office has a big woven rug, displaying the face of the father of the “Lion of Ajara.” The Governor has a side table with six rotary dial telephones, and two phones without dials (direct links to something), there also is a propane lantern for power outages . . . but there is only one thing on the middle of his desk -- a small cell phone, which is constantly ringing and appears to be the only phone he uses.
