As far as I know, the tall person is the only foreigner in our neighborhood and because we walk a lot he is quite well known.
Children often practice their English on him and wherever we walk we often hear cries of ‘hello’ and ‘how are you’ and ‘goodbye’.
Everyone is friendly and very patient when he asks for something in the shops but sometimes he has to resort to sign language or other ways to make himself understood.
He wanted to buy a hot water bottle recently and the shop assistant could not understand, so he drew a picture! He must be a very good artist because he came home with a lovely blue hot water bottle.
Anyway, a new bread and pastry shop has opened in our neighborhood. We passed it today on our walk. The owner must know about the tall person because he or she has very thoughtfully made an ‘open’ sign in both Georgian and English.
