I think your blog is missing a direct link to a good map of Georgia which shows its relationship to other countries in the area and actually labels those countries. In English. I'm a dumb American when it comes to that area of the world so while I know what direction you're headed in I still can't quite picture it. And I'm too lazy to look very long to figure it out.
Setting aside the troubling notion that the person studying to be a schoolteacher is "too lazy" to figure out world geography, I have provided a map of the relevant sector of the world with helpful "War On Terror" labels:

If you're still having trouble: Me = Georgia, the country that could be a sandwich = Turkey, the Black Sea = the Black Sea, the Evil Sea = the Caspian Sea, the Mediterranean Sea = the Pacific Ocean, Evil = Syria, Iraq, Iran, Chechnya, and the Russian exclave of the Kaliningrad Oblast, and the arrows = Europe.

We only teach state history in fourth grade!

While that is a very nice map I still did not find it quite descriptive enough. I had to get up and look at the map on my wall! Turns out it covers all of that area, but it's in German so it's not as helpful as it could be.
