A spontaneous and hugely inspirational trip to Armenia! So much beautiful art and wonderful, friendly people. It was also fascinating to experience a post-soviet country which had also recently had a 'velvet' revolution. It's a non-violent revolution, and now a year or so after, Armenia is finding it's own social and political balance.
