What’s Doing in: Tbilisi
September 13, 2003
New! Easy! World travel without actual travel!
My brother Clif has taken off for another of his elaborate journeys. He is in Soviet Georgia for the next five months, along with his wife and their young son Wilson. Clif is an artist, and he’ll be working on a new book. Mary Neal, a book designer and editor, will be doing whatever editing she can scrounge, and Wilson will be wandering and absorbing all things Tbilisi. They’re keeping a blog of their trip: Living with Caucasians. It’s fascinating. So far, I’m thinking the major challenges will be: 1. The language. 2. Being pale in a not-pale country. 3. Avoiding descent into sodden, spongy alcoholism.
Mary Neal has been hired as Mason-Dixon Knitting’s Senior Correspondent for Caucasian Fiber Arts. We hope to have a report once she gets good at saying “deelahmshveedohbeesah.” That would be “good morning.”
