Told a middle-aged Georgian cab driver today that I knew only one word in Georgian: madlobt - thank you. He sighed and said that he'd soon turn into a one-word-in-Georgian person himself: "Been here far too long." I asked if he missed Georgia, and he said he did miss things from his childhood a lot.

  1. I had the same sort of conversation recently but with a Lithuanian taxi driver. After he complemented me on my Lithuanian (so far, much more advanced than my Georgian) I ran out of words and switched to Russian. After that we exchanged the few words we both knew in Georgian.
