Tomi+Angi’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 21 May 2009

Location: Yerevan, Armenia

MapHello from the capital city of Armenia!
You should see with your own eyes this. This city could be really anywhere in Europe! It is so lively with lot of students and lovely places for tea or coffee... green and clean... I really love it here! I would like to be a student again and study here for a year so two :))) It will be hard to see everything what we want but will try to walk around today and see the buildings and maybe the best museum as well. Armenia is the oldest Christian country in the world surrounded by Muslims and has a rich cultural heritage. Almost everybody can speak Russian but lot of them English as well here is not a problem to ask or just have a nice conversation with people. The country is friend with Russia and the USA as well!!! I do not know how they manage it but believe me they do… Iran is friendly country as well but they do not like Turkey and Azerbaijan at all (wars/conflicts happen regularly).
We will travel around Yerevan in the next few days then continue to North and leave the country to Georgia where we are going to stay just 2-3days and finally finish in Turkey/Istanbul again.
