Caucasian Escapades

Writers: Ben Wheeler & Anna Harbaugh

Plan:  Post about our experience and any Caucasus-related items of interest including books, recordings, news, found items and artifacts. 

Trips: Primarily around Georgia, with visits to Armenia and Azerbaijan. 

Job: Teach English in Georgia’s Public Schools

Here is a New York Times article about our program, Teach and Learn with Georgia:

It makes the program seem “challenging but at least unique.” That phrase, from what I can infer from the reading I’ve been doing to prepare for the trip, may be a quick way of summing up the history of this diverse region.  The next post will be a short list of Caucasus-related fiction and non-fiction we’ve been reading.
