Children of Kazbegi

That's probably one of my most favorite shots from my Georgia trip. When I visited the remote village of Kazbegi I saw these four kids playing in the neighbor's property which was a house that's being renovated. When they saw me coming from the near guest house they thought I must be a tourist and started introducing themselves in English by emphasizing phrases learned by heart "Hello, my name is...". By the way, Kazbegi used to have a high school where children could learn foreign languages like English and even German. Russian isn't that widely spoken among kids and teenagers in Georgia anymore.
