Here I will hopefully post pics and comments about my life in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia during the year 2012.
So far, I have really only made one friend:
"Loma" the family dog, but that still pretty good since he tried to bite my arm about a month ago, however, after repeatedly talking to him nicely and feeding him scraps, he now adores me, if only people were so easy.
What else, what else, there is lots, but the wine is starting to get to me, here in Georgia, the men drink wine pretty much continuously, I drink about half as much but still.
Anyways, a couple more photos:
Stalin! They still love him here, crazy huh? Mainly because he was Georgian not Russian, did you know that?
This is Nino, the 16 year old daughter of Nugo(whose family I am staying with). She is the only one who knows any English, but I have to be careful when around her, her father(Nugo) gets mad at her for(I guess) smiling at me too much or what, so if this thread comes to an abrupt end or you hear that an American teacher got killed in Georgia, its likely me, and because Nugo got the wrong idea...
