Welcome to Our Glorious, Marvelous, Surprisingly Ordinary, Very Gay Days.

Our cousin Sarah arranged for us to have a private concert before lunch today with a Georgian choir that performs traditional songs from various areas of Georgia. We were having so much fun in the open air that a Holy man joined us- see the right side of the bottom photo. I really like the yodeling sound the women sing in parts of their songs.
Also, the dancing is amazing. The women move in a shy and delicate motion, whereas the men move in violent warrior-type motion right next to them. The contrast is beautiful.
