Georgian Public School #165


Our visit to School #165 was an eye-opening experience. Our visit was a REALLY big deal. The head of the Georgian Education Ministry was there, and the students were very excited to talk with us. Students preformed a Traditional Dance and gave a fascinating drumming performance, which I videotaped. The students like American culture, cell phones, etc. And I even stopped by the gym class to play some ball. The other picture is from the luncheon which the school had for us, again, delicious food, and I am sitting with teachers from the school, who are very eager for me to e-mail them pictures.

Tonight we will board a sleeper train, and we will wake up in Batumi, on the Black Sea coast. You can read about Batumi on a previous post. See you next post...

Since you have met so many individuals in Georgia and have talked to them, have you learned anything surprising about Georgia's economy or economic woes they are facing now?

Also, it looks like you can still ball on the court, even if you are up against an 12 year-old 5 ft high.

It is interesting to see how American culture spreads across the world. Do the students study America in their schools?
