Die like a Georgian
We learned of
the death of a far relative in the age of 28 in the Western Georgian Region of Guria. He drunken made a race with his friend on the back of his horse along a fast going train. As if they wanted to jump from the horseback on the train. Whacking his horse with a short whip, the whip got tangled up at some part of the wagon. He felt fatally at the direction of the train, his fellow luckily the other side.
