“Taking a ride on the Chiatura cable cars.”

Would you ride this rusted out cable car in Western Georgia? Make sure to send this to a friend who has a general mistrust of chairlifts to make them sweat:

WIKIPEDIA ABOUT CABLE CARS: Due to the steep sided river valley, production workers spent a large amount of time walking up from the town to the mines, there by reducing productivity. In 1954 an extensive cable car system was installed to transport workers around the valley and up to the mines. Still utilising the same infrastructure installed originally in the 1950s, today some 17 separate aerial lift cable car systems still exist around the town.  Some of the most interesting lines are just outside the city. As of October 2017, the central hub with 4 lines is being rebuilt with modern cable car technology.
