[kl-bogel] Armenia, travel notes, day 3



Today I publish a final report about Armenia. Time I was little, only 2 full days, but I tried to hold them as efficiently as possible. On the last day I had half a day and I decided to go to the highest mountain in Armenia - Aragats, especially the way there have opened a few days ago. According to legend, was the sister of Aragats Mount Ararat. Once the sisters love each other a falling out. Tried in vain to reconcile them Marutasar mountain, an angry, she cursed them both, they were forever separated.



01. Early in the morning I went to meet the dawn on a viewing platform at Victory Park.


02. The city was still asleep, and the first rays of sunlight illuminate the top of Mount Ararat!


03. About the city I wrote in first post. By the end of a trip to Yerevan, my attitude has changed - the decrepit, dusty Soviet city.


04. The top is illuminated)


05. After 20 minutes, the sun reached the city.

07. The Armenians, as well, and in Russian, very well all be divided into "his" and "strange". In Yerevan, can stand apart in a few million dollars, and before him to be broken down the road. Each day the owner of the mansion will go around the pit and open the hatches on his Bentley, but never will repair the road - it is "strange". You can see that the owner of an expensive house decided to put "beautiful" lights. He never occurred to negotiate with the neighbors and set lights on the street, he did not remove the wires under the ground, lest they spoil the view of its "smart" lights. Due to the fact that, in Yerevan, one thinks only of himself, in a city in chaos and ruin. The Armenians are plenty of spitting and swearing at me, but it is. What is happening now with your city, it's terrible, you will destroy it completely his samostroev, elite palaces at the very heart and care attitude to history. In Moscow, unfortunately, a similar situation.
