  • Traveled with friends to Van province and Mušskoj Valley. Visited many places related to ARMENIAN history. One of the strongest impressions-a trip on Lake VAN, on an island where the surb khach Church. A unique place, preserved, in spite of that, the spirit of the times, history, memory. A kind of tranquillity and silence especially felt here. People quite a bit. Rare tourists from Europe and America, a pair of Turkish families. Exceptional and unique Lake with water piercing blue and purity!
