A Visit to Armenia

It’s been a little over a year since Doug and I took our exhilarating, emotional trip to Yerevan, Armenia. We often relive memories of the people we met, places we visited, and food we sampled (a big draw for me!). We also discuss plans to (someday) return to see the things we didn’t have time for on our first, brief visit.

Maestro George Pehlivanian
A few days ago, my sister, Dawn, sent me a link for a video called ‘Laura McKenzie’s Traveler’s Tips - Armenia’. Ms. McKenzie, the host and her tour companion, international conductor, Maestro George Pehlivanian, explore Yerevan, the surrounding outskirts of the city, examine the people, history, culture and food.





Yerevan's Republic Square
Some of the program's highlights include: Etchmiadzin, the Armenian Genocide Memorial, Garni Temple, Geghard Monastery, Republic Square, shopping, the making of jingalov hatz, and so much more!

Watching this brought back such wonderful memories!
