in visit (from küla, village)

A very interesting concept I learned recently is to visit in Estonian. To say “I’m in a visit” (in a friend’s house, for example), you say “ma olen külas“. That last phrase literally means “I’m in (the) village“. Basically, another person’s place is like going to a village. That makes complete sense to me.
