First impressions from sunny Georgia

GEORGIA | Wednesday, 27 May 2015 | Views [66] | Scholarship Entry

Understanding that Georgia nation is different than Ukrainian come to me in the airport already. Georgians we can see far away . Maybe it is strange but we can to make identification them by walk. As usually they walk quickly , surely and straightly not walking around actually.
Appearance is common too- dark eyes, hair too, and of course, beard.
One Georgian said I am a Georgian I had to have a beard.
Starting from airplane’s window I understood why mountings in the pictures from Georgia,actually, it's impossible to make a picture without it, because the are everywhere.
It was so sweet when customs house in Georgia present me a little bottle of vine .”……………
( and this is my first souvenir from Georgia ), officer said that it is for good impression from Georgia and its works ).
Got my luggage, one more surprise waited for me- to hug a part of communication in Georgia, to be honestly , I always thing that it is invasion into individual space, but here it is a rule.
Next was a bus. Everybody was looking at me like a newcomer . Maybe I am walking different)))) but I think it's because blond hair and blue eyes. Also bus remember my by plenty of man’s parfumerie. So, all my way I was thinking about old grandpa. Road was hard. Get up,get down ….ehhh… Mountings in a top. And a lot of garbage , abandoned houses , cows, pigs which are walking along,and construction garbage down….
The largest city. Is Tbilisi, but it seems like a town in Ukraine. Chaos is everywhere !!! Everybody cross the road wherever they want and ( ohhh yeah!) ring each other! They do like it!! It seems that it's their favorite business during driving!)))
I was so lucky because Vano met me. Not Vania, not Ivan like it in Russian language, just Vano!( he said it))) he said that it's his Georgian name and he is proud of it)
He talk a little Russian and always asked me “UNDERSTAND ????” It was sooo funny!!
Round to my town was amazing –mountings , snow, trees-miracle !!! Like in a fairytale !
After got acquitted with Vano I understood how Georgians do love their country ) they are proud of everything and even when something is not perfect they say: “ it was worth and we will make better!”
So, amazing mountings , temperate man, garbage everywhere and strange for my ears language – this is my Georgia !!!
