muka or muka?If you speak

by Nathan Hamm on 12/11/2003

muka or muka?If you speak Russian, you’ll know how big of a
difference this can be. Flour or torture? The only difference is in the
accent. This was so amusing to me and a few other Russian speaking
volunteers in Uzbekistan that I often forgot which was which.
I had to be told. Congratulate Mary Neal for figuring it out on her own.

And it goes without saying again that Living with Caucasians is just about the only place in the blogosphere you can find amazing Georgia coverage all the time.
