Life in Georgia

I don't have a lot of time, but I wanted to let everyone know I'm alive and happy here in Sakartvelo! Life in Georgia is interesting, to say the least, but I'm enjoying every minute of it and couldn't be happier with my decision to join the Peace Corps. 

I'm currently living in a small village about two hours from Tbilisi. I spend most of my time (6 days a week) studying the language and the ins and outs of NGOs in Georgia, as well as learning about the culture and how to integrate into our communities. It's truly amazing how much we have all learned in such a short amount of time; the Peace Corps staff certainly knows what they're doing here! 

I should have fairly regular access to the Internet within the next few weeks, so I'll be sure to update my blog with more details and pictures. But for the time being, please know I'm safe and happy!

  1. Rural Georgia is truly rural. I wish the photo showed you among the cows! This is a ritual you won't soon forget. Be safe!

  2. Hey Susan! Glad you are doing well and loving the country (and the cows - yikes). In honor of you I am washing my face in ice cold water every day lol. My way of remembering to send you love and prayers! If you think it would be more honoring to use hot water feel free to let me know - brrrr!
