Yikes, war has begun a mere two weeks before I was due on Georgian soil! Russia bombed military targets next to the airport I would have flown into outside of Tblisi. (Just search for “georgia” on Google News to find out more.) I was going there for a short study abroad program offered by UW (some info here and here). This is very unfortunate. I was looking forward to enjoying a supra (feast), meeting my host family, and seeing Georgia’s diverse landscapes and historical sites. Info on Georgian cuisine at Wikipedia and this ugly but informative site.
