A lovely story, and such a common situation in Georgia, which would leave people thinking you were crazy if you did such as thing ‘back home’!
Working with the police has its perks; I have Wednesdays off. This isn’t the case for all teachers of the police, but in many cases, we teach 3 days a week. After two days of sitting home without much to do, I decided to take an independent excursion to Senaki. A friend of mine was there helping to conduct a workshop in gender issues, so I stopped by. I was greeted with lunch and a group of randomly-selected Georgian participants from the Senaki area.
Kindly, my friend offered to show me around Senaki, but we soon realized there was not much to see in the small town. Because my friend had to get back to his workshop, I decided to make the short trek to Nokalakevi by myself. Luckily there was another woman who was headed in the same direction and pointed out the marshrutka I should take.
