climbing tour

At the end of February two friends from Belarus and I were climbing up Dilijan's hills and enjoyed the great view over this sleepy and beautiful town.

To the album.



yccd fair

On July 9, we and our children made a really great event in the city centre of Dilijan. We introduced YCCD and specially its clubs to local children and played many games with them. When you see the smiling children on the pics here, you will understand how much fun it was for them :) and of course also for me ;)


1st of September: Day of Knowledge

Every year on September 1 all schools in Armenia (and also in other post-soviet countries) celebrate the start of the new school year. The day is also called "Day of Knowledge". And as the small girl on the picture all children are dressed very festively and have some flowers or balloons. Speeches are given, the children sing and dance and proud parents accompany their children at their first school day.

As usual in this patriotic country, patriotic elements can be found at this event as well. After a hand-picked pupil had hoisted the Armenian national flag, the national anthem was sung ardently by all the children. I do not wonder any more about such patriotic rituals, but for me it is still remarkable. But maybe such thoughts might be typical for a person coming from Germany :D

Here you can find more pictures I took during the event.

4 to 5 times in a week I go with my good friend Tigran in the morning to this nice gym place and do sports. Here you can see some impressions.

During my EVS time I also met with other volunteers. Here two pics from the on-arrival-training in Georgia and our Christmas evening in Yerevan.
