Katie, the Town Drunk, and the Policeman (Mestia – Upper Svaneti Region, Georgia, 24-Jun-13)

While Roger enjoyed a Cuban cigar and we shared a bottle of Georgian wine in the town square (directly in front of the police station), we were joined by the town drunk. After an extended non-conversation full of phrase books, gesticulation, countless uncomfortable moments, and inquiries by the locals as to whether we were being pestered, a local policeman came to check on our merry party. In turn, he decided to join the party, and Katie had them both enthralled as she perfected her Georgian phrases.

    I hope you’re planning on taking this off-Broadway when you return.

    Katie, what a linguist! We are confident you can travel anywhere and make yourself understood. You have totally captivated the policeman and the drunk. You go girl!
