Armenia - Yerevan - Cascade - l.s. photo

“There were hardly any tourists in the city. I liked the fact that taxi drivers and other service providers don’t hassle you, and we didn’t have to turn down an offer ever thirty seconds or so, like in some less developed countries.
The first thing on our itinerary was to climb the waterfall, which isn’t a bad form of extreme sports in 40° heat, but all the same, I was a bit disappointed. It looked more spectacular in the photos on the internet. At the top of the hill behind it there is a run-down amusement park, just like in Tbilisi and Kutaisi, and a ‘mother’ statue, similar to the ones we saw in Tbilisi and Kiev. (2017)”

“Yerevan is quite a modern city, and in the downtown area it doesn’t look much different to any Western European city. Travel just a couple of kilometers out into the outskirts, however, and you’ll find yourself in a different world. Honestly, I preferred the latter – the people are genuinely friendly and hospitable, as well as being practical and realistic.” (2019)
