Caucasus Photo Journal – Week 8: Yerevan and Tatev

Every Friday during our three-month trip through the Caucasus I plan to publish a short series of photos that sums up the week that was.

We really soaked up the city during our second week in Yerevan, visiting the GUM Market and other less-touristic spots. The highlight of our week was attending Tsitsernakaberd, the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex, on April 24, marked annually as Genocide Memorial Day. We also took a day trip to Tatev in southern Armenia, which involved six hours in a bus but was totally worth it.

Soviet chic in Yerevan. I love how each apartment’s facade has been customised by its owner over time.

It’s sights like this that make me glad I’m not a backpacker.
