Georgian Links

Check out the Georgian links I just added in the left margin further down the page.  These give you a lot of information about the country.

  2. Yes, I need to be more disciplined and learn them. Again, thank you so much for following my blog. I really enjoy communicating with you and discussing Georgian issues! Some of my Georgian friends read the blog but are too shy to post.

  3. Well, I enjoy following your blog! I have another question: do you know of any modern Georgian writers whose novels have been translated into English (or French or Italian)? I have tried to do some research on modern Georgian literature on the internet, but so far, I have not found a single author whose books I would be able to read!

  4. Hey, Margherita!

    Like you, I haven't heard of any of the modern writers translated into English but they have translated some of the classical authors such as Shota Rustaveli. Let me check with some of my coworkers tomorrow to see what they suggest. I'll get back to you after that.
