After leaving Gyumri, the three of us spent two weeks in Yerevan. We stayed in a large apartment on Tumanyan Street which was very close to the center of the city. In between applying for a passport, a visa and trying to secure a flight home, we walked all over the city. It was my fifth visit to Yerevan, Big Papa’s fourth and Baby Bird’s first visit to the capitol of Armenia.
We visited parks, many of which had playgrounds.
We listened to the enchanting duduk.
We ate a lot of lahmajun and drank a lot of tan.
We chatted with our favorite artist, Sergei (from whom we’ve bought a number of paintings)
We avoided the sharp horns of the metal bull (this sculpture is one of my favorites, particularly since Baby Bird is a Taurus!).
We checked out fantastic art at the Children’s Museum.
We rode the many escalators at the Cascades (and walked down the 572 steps).
We took in the view at Erebuni.
And I took a lot of pictures (which is why I’m rarely in them!).
