Many of my blogs are serious, as I focus on real life happenings in Armenia. As Dave and I live and work here with the Peace Corps,  I realize that these writings may sound more negative than I intend even though there are definitely positives for us in this life we are leading.

I also realize that my blogs are lengthy, verbose, time-consuming to read, and often just too long to be blog entries.      So................this blog will only have photos with minimal text.  To follow are photos of a few people we've met and experiences we've had outside of our work but inside our goal of integrating and immersing ourselves into life in Armenia.
Family from Iran who we met in Yerevan as we walked down the street. The father spoke and taught English and invited us to visit in Iran.    We are not allowed to go to Iran while in Peace Corps service.

Finale for children's award-winning musical produced at the Dilijan Music College.

Lovely family we met in Dilijan then had dinner with in their Yerevan home, most hospitable and inviting family!

thousands of words.  Enjoy!

  1. It’s never too early to think about the Third Goal. Check out Peace Corps Experience: Write & Publish Your Memoir. Oh! If you want a good laugh about what PC service was like in a Spanish-speaking country back in the 1970’s, read South of the Frontera: A Peace Corps Memoir.
