as promised, i am starting a new series of posts called My Georgia. in these series i will try to be "short and sweet", and entertaining (and hopefully educational). i want to make it really easy read.
for the first post, i decided to introduce you to the unique Georgian language through an old Georgian folk song. Georgian may not flow as smooth as English in a song, but what better way to introduce culture than through music - the universal language?
Mokhevis Kalo Tinao performed by Georgian-American artist Ilusha Tsinadze. his CD will be released on May 15, 2011. the song, is actually, a modern interpretation of an old Georgian folk song. it goes something like this:
oh, Tina, a girl from Mokhevi,
please teach me the way to your house.
either give me your address,
or follow me to my home.
all your girlfriends have gotten married,
why are you just staying home all day?

sorry for the poor translation, i'm taking Louie (our new puppy) for his dr. check up and heading out the door, as soon as i finish typing.
