I have set my bleary eyes upon Armenia at last. After two plane rides, hours upon hours of travel, and forging acquaintance with my new travel partners, the adventure has officially begun. It was the first day of the 2010 Young Professional Trip to Armenia which I joined to get acquainted with the country I will be staying in for the next couple of months.
This group is tied through the anecdotes and traditions of their Armenian parents and grandparents. As a non-Armenian, I am the observer, reveling in the new lessons they are quickly teaching me about what Armenian community and camaraderie truly means, along with significance of things like khas and lavash. Yerevan is a bustling, colorful city.
Tomorrow we set forth for more.
