Georgian cabdriver

Ben and I were in a cab on Saturday night and he noticed that the driver's name on his placard was Georgian. He mustered up some Georgian and asked the driver where he was from (Tbilisi), and then they switched to English to talk about the country, where to get good Georgian food in New York, and so on. The cabdriver told us that his father was one of the most famous artists in Georgia...

...and as the ride came to end, he told us, "you can learn about him on my blog!"
