Mount Ararat and Yerevan

Yerevan is the capital of Armenia, and today we explored some of the most interesting sites in and around the city.

It was an unusually clear day, so we were able to see Mount Ararat wth the Khor Virap Monastery in the middle distance and vineyards in the foreground.

The Genocide Museum and Memorial is one of the most significant sites in Yerevan.
These are slides projected in the museum.
