This week I had the chance to teach a course in Tbilisi Georgia. It was my first time there, if anyone is thinking about going I would definitely recommend it.
My favorite part of the trip was teaching the course and getting to know my students. In Tallinn University some of our best students are from Georgia. In Georgia right now there are final exams so the students who signed up were motivated. Having an entire class full of bright motivated students is a dream come true. I could tell that they will go on to be very successful in life.
The food in Georgia is also great. Georgians love their food. There are Georgian restaurants everywhere. It didn't seem like there was a huge variety, a few key dishes but it seemed that everyone loved to eat them. Kind of like Pizza and hamburgers for us.
This is like a Cheese pizza without the tomato sauce. The cheese is a bit more salty and much more flavorful. This might have been my favorite, I could eat it every day.
The last evening we went to a different city about 25 km outside of Tblisi. A student and her brother took us. Mtskheta (try to say that 10 times in a row) is the ancient capital of Georgia and it was beautiful.
