This is foodporn. These are delicious. Part pancake, part greens, all tasty.
A business reporter I’ve befriended here in Yerevan once told me, “There’s one thing you can guarantee any businessman in Armenia will say in an interview — just ask him if his company is profitable. He’ll always say no.”
Here's my second blog entry for the Kiva Fellows Blog. It's about taxes, though not as boring as that sounds -- I hope...
Somewhere on the mountainous roads through the southern regions of Armenia. This donkey was not impressed by our SUV, which, admittedly, was no match for the pothole-filled dirt roads.
Trust me, I have a lot of these.
This wolf doesn't need to call for backup. Spotted this decal on the hood of a vehicle in Gyumri.
Didn't get a chance to buy any, but the apples in Gyumri were tasty. Fun fact: they're nature's toothbrush - if you're stuck without one and need a 'clean,' reach for an apple to do a pretty good job until you get some proper dental tools.
Soviet Armenian director and artist, Sergei Parajanov, has a delightful museum in Yerevan. Inside, you'll find an extensive collection of his work, as well as pieces he created while in prison (he was imprisoned for homosexuality, which was deemed 'illegal'). Nonetheless, Parajanov's legacy lives on. Be sure to visit this museum when you're next in Yerevan.
