Daily Life


Lizi is 13 years old and lives with her mom and dad in Zugdidi. In this article, you will learn about her daily life, her time at school, how she gets around, her hobbies and what her home is like. 

What is your full name?:

My name is Lizi Samushia. I'm 13 years old.

Where do you live? What is your house like?:

I live in Zugdidi, quite close to the city center. My house is very typical of my community. It's a two-story home with nine rooms. There is a living room, where everyone hangs out. Usually, though, I study in my bedroom. My home has two kitchens, which is a Georgian tradition. The second kitchen is in a small, separate building where we store potatoes, tomatoes and preserves. Like many Georgian homes, we have a garden where we grow potatoes and tomatoes. There's also an orange tree and two apple trees. 

What is your family like?:

My family is very sweet and we spend a lot of time together. I live with my mother and father. My brother is 18, and he started studying at a university in the capital city, Tbilisi, this year. I miss him more than I thought I would! He came home for Christmas to visit. My grandparents on my mom's side live really close, so I see them often. My grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins on my dad's side live in a nearby village called Lia. Our family has a hazelnut tree plantation there.
