"Genocide" has to be one of the saddest words ever.
It means the killing of a large group of people who share a particular religion or ethnic or racial label.
The Republic of Armenia, which is only one-tenth the size of the historical Armenia, is located near Turkey and Azerbaijan.
Mount Ararat used to be a part of the older, larger Armenia, and although it is now in Turkey, it is still visible in Armenia. This mountain is a symbol of their land and is a part of their national emblem!
Armenia is landlocked (it has no direct access to any ocean or sea), but it is near both the Black Sea and Caspian Sea.
I grew up eating lavash, a delicious, flat, chewy bread. Lavash is traditionally baked in underground ovens called tonirs.
The capital city of Armenia, Yerevan, is known as the "pink city."
There are beautiful places to see in Armenia!
