Via the NYTimes. I love his description of Georgia:
How would you describe Georgia in general? It’s spontaneous, it’s open-minded, it’s a little bit chaotic. It’s about wine and beautiful landscapes. It’s about good food.
What kind of good food? Like khinkali. It’s a big dumpling — with juice inside and meat.
It sounds fattening. Well, it should be a little bit fattening. President Bush loved it. Every time I call, he says, “I’m still on my bike, trying to lose the eight pounds I gained in Tbilisi.”
Only eight pounds? Bush got off easy! He probably didn’t order three types of khachapuri with every meal…
Damn, I really want to go back to Georgia.
