The trip was less painful than what I excpected. I reached the Ortachalla bus station @ 8:30. When I arrived 2 buses have already departured the station. If you arrive early then you'll have the luxuray of choosing you seat. We waited for about an hour for the Marshutska to fill (around 15 passender). The bus station at Tbilisi had very clean Toillet facility (you have to pay .2 lary to use it) and it had few canteens and little shops. The Mershutska ticket cost 30 Lari. A bus left the station 1/2 before we did but these buses are incredibly slow. There was a room for bags @ the back. We arrived @ the borders after 1:30 hour and I had my visa so I had little problem. There was a German gentelman who had to buy a visa. He paid 30 US $ for it and his ordeal was TOTALLY painless and very smooth. When finnished with our passport we went to the bus to find out that costoms were done checking our bags. I was surprized because mine was locked, I was told they just looked at it from the out side and then put back again in the bus. 2 hours later we stopped @ a little resturant by the river for an hour, where there was a toilet. I recommend that you bring your own food and drink because the resturant was very expensive. The entire trip with boarder crossing and the hour took about 6.5 hours.

Sorry I could not describe the Yerevan bus station because I was exhausted. I took a taxi to down town. I was charged 1000 Dram but i told later by friends that it should have costed me 700 Dram. I was also told that there was a bus between the the station and down town area, I was tired and wanted to get to the hotel as soon as I can
