<<In Georgia, they say "Hey".>>

Really, ira? That's not what travlang.com says.

They list "gamarjobat" as the translation for "Hello" in Georgian.

You can hear it at http://www.travlang.com/languages/georgian/basics08.au



Best wishes,

Rex

Rex, I believe you made the same mistake as my father. He sent his letter to Georgia, and got mad when the US post office sent it back.

The correct address would've said "republic of Georgia" as in the former Soviet Union.

Ira meant Georgia = USA state.
