Here are some pictures from a tour I took. The pictures I have of this country are SO beautiful- walking through the village, I felt I had entered a dream land. The people were great, the food was absolutely delicious, and it was another amazing day in Armenia, the most beautiful country in the world.

Mesrop Mashtots is really important to Armenia because he
created the alphabet. This is his grave.

Byurakan- a tiny village in the Aragatsotn region.

Village life- so beautiful.

This is a small pit where Armenians make lavash, a famous

They make almost all of their food from scratch- butter, cheese,
