ველური წვეულება aka Daga`s birthday

On Monday, 29th of November, we were celebrating Dagmara`s birthday. One year older, one year wiser! ;)

Our little party started around 5 in EVS flat, but of course, since we are in Georgia, some of us arrived only around 8. We drank hot wine with spices, honey and vodka-oranges and ate the delicious apple cake that Daga had baked (btw, we are still waiting for that recipe ;)). But the real party didn`t start until after we had wedding : Dato and Teona - groom and bride, Cristi - the priest (yeah, laughing out loud) and others as guests. After the wedding the real tsveuleba could start and Joe brought out his guitar. We sang the EVS song, the Estonian song and some international songs - you can probably hear them on Friday in Rustavi Theatre - as well as some beautiful Georgian songs by Dato and Pati.

The EVS band (also called Nippleschnitzel or The White Dog and friends) used to consist of two people and one guitar but on Monday we took it to another level: everybody joined in with whatever they could make rythm with, for example pans, shower pipes and even Scotch tape!!! Yeah, creative is the right word to describe us :)

I think I can speak for everybody when I say that Monday was a great day and we all enjoyed it very very much! And once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAGA! :)
