There is no way to predict what might happen around Telavi. Just when you think things might be “normal”, the least expected happens.
Having dinner out on the patio with a bunch of friends? What could go wrong? Not an unknown dog jumping onto the tin roof of your neighbor’s shed, in an attempt to get to your dinner party.
Building relationships in a small village? How could anything odd happen there? Oh wait, a random flock of ducks just decided to land right in front of you…and better yet, seem to be walking up to you!
Oh and driving home from the village. I love to drive. Nothing could be weird about that. Until I get stopped for about 5 minutes as a herd of sheep walk down the road… seemingly unaware of the cars trying to get around them. Oh wait, that’s not a car coming…that’s a horse-drawn cart with car tires. Yeah, technically that is “normal” around here 😊.
What can I say? Telavi definitely keeps me on my toes!
Keep me in your prayers this week. I will be teaching my first kids class this coming Saturday. And with the help of my friends, will try to do the lesson portion in Georgian. I’m gonna need your prayers!!!
I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes…
