... city !) and came back later to enjoy as well a good sleep.

After a good sleep, all three went to visit the city and its little souvenir shops. After wandering around the nicely renovated streets, giving the city a nice modern/classical style, we bumped into the military parade, which was really impressive (moreover because Azerbaijan is still officially in a state of war with Armenia since 1994).

The next stop was Armenia, which was a strange mixture of things. Outside the capital, it seemed like there was not much. Apart from monasteries. There were very very many monasteries (possibly something to ...

Armenia's borders with Azerbaijan and Turkey are definitively closed, and their relationship with Georgia and Iran is tenuously good but only out of necessity. Russia is their best friend, and I doubt there would be much resistance to a return to Russian rule. You can't help but think that if only they opened the borders, there would be more prosperity in the region. But as ...
