Foreigners about Georgia
Russian Journal, by John Steinbeck, 1948
"In these terrific Georgians we had met more than our match. They could out-eat us, out-drink us, out-dance us, out-sing us. They had fierce gaiety of the Italians and the physical energy of the Burgundians. Everything they did was done with flair".
"We did not feel strange in Tiflis, for Tiflis received many visitors, and it is used to foreigners..."
"It is a magical place, Georgia, and it becomes dream-like the moment you have left it. And the people are magic people. It is true that they have one of the richest and most beautiful countries in the world, and they live up to it".
