- Mapshalia: Megrelian cuisine with a smile 7 months ago Mapshalia is as unassuming as they come.

In my opinion, one of the funniest blogs out there! She manages to inject humour into those sad and lonely moments we all experience as expats. I have never been to China, but she makes me want to go there! Even if they spit everywhere.
