Just some random thoughts I have had while being here.
- Who needs a lawn mower when you have cows?
- Why buy a vacuum when you have chickens?
- Georgians never heard the Greeks when they said everything in moderation (I’m talking mostly about alcohol).
- What goes through your head when you see a road sign over the highway near Tbilisi saying Tehran 800km?
- I tried to wipe the mud from my shoes on the grass in the yard but the cows ate it all.
- Did the Russians really have to bomb all the bridges near Gori? It really makes it hard to travel to Tbilisi. (Of course as far as military tactics go, I guess it makes sense). Russia I shake my fist at you.
- Why do the mice in my house have to pick 2 a.m. to play soccer with the walnuts?
- We lost power because it rained so much that the power line could no longer be supported by the ground it had been placed in.
- “I feel like I’m the bun and you’re my hot dog and I am bunning you” -Carla (introducing Carlaisims)
- “Oh my god I am a fire breathing dragon. Is anything coming out? –Carla
- Maybe the Minister (of Education) can come to Zugdidi and we can voice our complaints to him directly” –Carla “With bricks” –Yevgeniy This was a response to the Ministry breaking our contract (again) and adding or changing things.
- “Memoirs of a Geisha reminds me of my life here” –Ilana “Because of the gender roles and all” –Carla “No, because of the captivity” –Ilana
- “You would never be able to get this close to a cow in the U.S.” –Ilana Talking to my sister about the difference between cows in the U.S. and cows in Georgia.
