Very nice rooms, everything great but wifi only available in the lobby and swimming pool area and the hotel is not in the city center occasioning some difficulty in getting transportation to and from the hotel. It was not that easy a walk to the city center for those who tried it.

The hostel doesn't have enough visitors to run the tours today or tomorrow, so I set off on a day tour myself via the very inexpensive public transportation. Today's day trip would be to Echmiadzin on a very grey skied day. I would only see the sun for about 5 minutes today but luckily I really didn't rain.

... ve heard that. But it seems impossible--I can't imagine how Armenians can live there."
Quite a contrast with my interaction with young Israelis--some say they'd love to move to Germany--and they certainly don't see 21st century Germans and murderous monsters. Of course, unlike Turkey, Germany has come clean, fully admitted that a genocide took place--and has continuously made generous compesation to the survivors.
Some say that that's ...
... one last village of Byuravan. There isn't time to check out the monastery a few kilometers away, so I just catch a minibus back to Yerevan and call it a day. Later, tracing my steps, I calculate that I walked over 30 kilometers, when it would've been just an 11 km hike if I had stuck to the highway to Yerevan. I feel pretty annoyed with myself for having made such a huge miscalculation. Maybe the experience of trailblazing through the desolate mountains was worth it though. ...
