Great post, Alice. However, since all of my feeds featuring the name Georgia must be referring to Dr. and Mrs. Parzen's extremely cute baby, I am boycotting your always insightful content for exactly one hour.

(Keep up the great work!)



You are totally justified!


Great post. I know you are a vegetarian, was it easy for you to travel in Georgia? I am planning on visiting next way for 2 weeks. Do you have a translator or guide you like to use? I don't want to rely on Lonely Planet. I am going on a wine journey. Hopefully stopping in Amenia for a few days.


There is a lot of meat but there's plenty of vegetable and great cheese and egg dishes. It's a very vegetable-based died and a delicious one. It would help a great deal to travel with someone who spoke Georgian. You could contact John @ Pheasant's Tears ---http://www.pheasantstears.com/index.php?id=20&lang=eng---for some help getting the right guide if you don't want a 'tour.' He's the right connection.


Great. I have been looking at their website for the past fews months. And I meant Armenia. There is a crumb under my R. Thanks you and congratulations on the translation.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
