Yes, the elections are next week. I get that. But that’s not what this site is about. I’m sure there’s a billion other blogs for that. Instead, its about damn time I put some new photos [click to enlarge] up for your viewing pleasure:
Mom invited some friends over to try a new dish out a while back. I love cooking. I love cooking in this culture, and it’s a really good time when the neighbors are invited …
because that usually means a REALLY good time! ANUSH!
A couple weeks ago I visited the famous Areni village where some excellent wine is being produced; prior to meeting some European tourists being entertained by a local folk dance group …
“Riverdance mi arse!” Armenians can dance and it’s a beautiful thing to watch!
The man, the myth, the legend in town. Once I was in the adjacent town 20 km away, 5 seconds into the conversation, someone asked if I had tried his product. I think you know the answer to that.
and the woman who raised the man, the myth, the legend … great sense of humor by the way. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard in my life when talking with here about life.
And, finally, last week we celebrated a birthday for a volunteer (lady at the end of the table) in our marz (region).
So there you have it, the last few weeks summed up in a few photos. I’m pathetic, I know there is more that is missing, small things, like the time my host mom ran into the kitchen as I was making pizza and was holding a dead bird in hand and screamed”Looook it’s dead”! I wasn’t really sure how to respond so I just let her walk through to the balcony and despose of it in her own peaceful way.
