Favorable lighting conditions near dusk resulted in a rainbow over the Arc de Triomphe.

Adjarian Khachapuri is a specialty of Georgia. This is from Laguna restaurant in Batumi. It is a bread boat filled with cheese, butter, and egg. Delicious but on the heavy side.

Fabrika in Tbilisi is a repurposed Soviet-era textile factory that now contains spaces for artists, restaurants, and an enormous hostel. Hopefully Fabrika will become a model for Tbilisi and other post-Soviet cities to put abandoned industrial buildings to good use instead of tearing them down. I recommend grabbing a bite to eat at Shio Ramen or Pipes Burgers and checking out the replica posters and other art for sale at the Black Dog Shop.

Lord of the Rings fans will recall the beacon fires of Gondor, where flames were lit in successive towers along a mountain range to signal war. The Svan defense towers served much the same function. When the Svan came under attack, which they frequently did, beacon fires would spread across the towers signaling a call to arms. The towers also doubled as fortified shelters that non-combatants could barricade themselves within and in some cases would live in as their regular home.

Some sights from the October 14, 2018 Mtskhetoba – Svetitskhovloba (მცხეთობა-სვეტიცხოვლობა) festival in Mtskheta. Mtskhetoba is an annual celebration held each year on October 14th in Mtskheta. The Georgian Catholicos-Patriarch leads a liturgy in the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral and street fairs fill the surrounding town. You can catch a marshrutka from the Didube Metro Station in Tbilisi, though you may have to hunt a bit to find a return ride.

Travelling third class on a Soviet-era train to Tbilisi.

The 17th Francophonie Summit (XVIIe Sommet de la Francophonie) is underway in Yerevan. Here's a quick look around the Village de la Francophonie which is open to the public and has exhibitions from nations across the Francosphere.

The Ararat region is frequently hazy, but I managed to catch Mount Ararat on a perfectly clear day while visiting Khor Virap.
