I spent 6 months in Armenia in 2002. I lived in the village of Harghartsin during the summer months and then moved to a smaller village called Shinuhayr in southern Armenia in the fall.
I also recently revisited Armenia in October 2004, spending time both in Yerevan and with my host family.

My Armenian host family at an all-night party for a soon-to-be departing soldier.

Pros and Cons
