A journal entry from: November 2011 until...

A few unusual things I've heard in Georgia since I've been here.

(in English)

"You eat like a chicken"

"You are a skeleton"

 (in Georgian - this conversation was in sign language and Georgian/Russian)

"To get to the glacier you must cross the river here. Just climb this rickety ladder, pass the precarious cows, then go over the swaying bridge over the raging torrent - be careful, a lot of the planks on the bridge are missing. But first you MUST drink vodka and eat cheese-bred with us. Please don't take my photo, I'm shy (or not meant to be drinking so much vodka at work).

 An unusual thing I've thought: "That cow reminds me of Joe Hart"
