Greetings from Sakartvelo! My last post was written from the largest province in Georgia, Kakheti, the famed center of the Iberian kingdom and the universally-acknowledged capital of Georgian wine where they still use qvevri (egg-shaped clay vessels) to produce wine.

Here, many … Continue reading Quick Update

Picking up the pieces from my last post, I continued to a wonderful Pesach celebration with friends before returning to Jerusalem. I have always found … Continue reading Goodbye Israel, Hello Georgia
