Immediately I started making a mental list of places I want to visit or revisit next time I am in Georgia. Even though it can be incredibly frustrating at times, this is a country that offers treasures around every corner and rewards for those who seek them out. Georgia draws you in and makes you want to return.
Until next time...

Anyway Larissa took me to say goodbye to her lovely parents and I got to sample Dodo's version of Georgia's answer to nshima or polenta, a thick corn porridge. In this case, it's served with fresh cheese marinated in minty sour cream, which may sound revolting (as it did to me at first) but is divine. Addictively divine, as in you will be immobilized on the sofa after eating an insane amount of it.

|Some people claim Georgians are unwilling to try new food. |
I am lucky because my host family likes everything.

As usual, I took a few walkabouts to get to know the place. Close to Choga, apparently. I didn't walk quite that far. We were in Chorutsku. Or something. Pretty close to Abkhazia, for those of you keeping score at home.
