Hi everybody,
sorry for posting in English, but I don't know a word of Georgian
I've been thinking for a while of visiting your country and Armenia and I hope
this can materialize in August. I might fly to Yerevan as it is cheaper.
Is it a nice time to travel? Is eveybody on holiday like in Italy? 'Cause I'd like to take
this opportunity to meet my peers and maybe organize a powwow
Any advice is welcome. Unfortunately I'd have only a month to prepare for the journey,
so I don't know how many books I can read. I've also to brush up my Russian
as it might be quite handy I guess. Needless to say, I'm a fan of Georgian cuisine.

Thanks a lot,
Paola

Welcome to Georgia! Jun 18, 2008

Hello Paola,

I have no plans about my summer holidays yet, but it is quite possible that I will take it in August. You see, this is the hottest month in Tbilisi and I would like to go to mountains with my sun. But in case I stay in Tbilisi during your visit, I would willingly meet you

Anyway, I hope you will enjoy Georgia and have a lot of fun there

Cheers,
Maya

Sorry Aug 11, 2008

I hope this post will find you all well.
I'm deeply sorry for the last events. I had to cancel my trip, but of course it's just temporary. I'll come to lovely Georgia as soon as possible and organize my powwow there.
A hug from Italy.
Paola

Dear Paola, Aug 11, 2008

We have a hard time now, but I hope everything will be settled soon and you will have new opportunities to travel to our country. We all should support each other.

Kind regards,
Maya

Thank you, Michal! I am sure the people from Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and the Ukraine do understand the situation rather better than the people from other countries.

Kind regards,
Levan

People from Belarus, too. At least, many. But there are others, too. When I added the Georgian flag to my profile picture in Odnoklassniki.ru , some put me '1' grades for that.

But sane people see what's happening.

Dear Paola, Paty, Michał, Yuri, Aug 29, 2008

Thank you all for your kind words!!!

Yuri, I am really happy to see your kind posting! People all over the world should respect each other and I strongly believe sane people are everywhere! The problem is really serious, but I hope it will be solved in a civilized way, and we, translators and interpreters have our duties, responsibilities and roles in this process.

Warm cheers
Maya
