We’re in Tblisi Searching for the World’s Oldest Honey (Oh, and P.S., We need help)
Gamarjoba! We’re in Georgia, a country that feels tipsily young, energetic, inventive, and rebellious – an incredible feat considering that it’s one of the world’s oldest cultures and peoples (if you’ve met a Georgian before you know that Georgia boasts the world’s oldest wine as well as the oldest human remains outside of Africa). But did you know Georgia also is home to the world’s oldest honey? For all of their pride, most Georgians actually don’t. We are on quest to find the researchers who uncovered this recent honey discovery or the PR firm who released the press release about it this past May, 2012. We’re here in Tbilisi, lining up interviews left and right but finding few leads.
Do you have some ideas for us? How do we find the world’s oldest honey?
We’ve been starting by uncovering Georgia’s political history, its traditions, and its food, (you can find evidence below this post of our discoveries as İ’ve been taking this light lull time to learn how to use instagram and an iphone).
While a breather has been fun, we need to get to work. Do you have any leads or advice for us?
