In 2018 i’ve visited Tbilisi, Georgia for the first time. Without understanding one word of the language, i’ve explored the first days the largest mountain of the city, which was close to my accommodation. Everyone who passed me there i greeted with “madloba” because I had heard this word more often and somehow assumed that it would mean hello. So I wandered around and photographed the fauna of the mountain, with the city in the background. And to everyone who passed me I said “madloba”.

Today i know that “madloba” means thanks.
