What was the most interesting place I visited this week?:

I visited the ancient city of Uplistsikhe, which was carved into a mountainside about 3,000 years ago. It was so cool to learn about the history of this important place and to see how people used to live here, enjoying the view of the valley and river in the same way as I was on my visit. I also got to see the capital of ancient Georgia, Mtskheta.

Other Travel News from this week:

It was an interesting week because there were massive protests here near my school. In order to avoid being there during protests, we had to change how we went to school and even changed our schedule.
