Happy New Year!

There’s a lot more I wanted to write about and discuss this year (e.g. issues of Kajaran mining project, Yerevan’s closed market and Parisian surch cafe), but everything ends at some point, so I will stop here and wish all the readers of this blog a very Happy New Year! Hope to see you here, at this blog – next year.

  1. the christmas tree matches Tsaroukyan’s present to Kocharyan (below). Rabiz, testless , expensive waste of money, resources and 100s of trees.

    1. I have a strange feeling, that you would love Gyumri mayor Vardan Ghukasian’s “Alexandrapol” hotel-palace. Too bad the video depicting that wonder has been removed from the YouTube.

  2. I saw a video or pictures. It excelled Tsaroukyans house but not the house on Yerevan-Ashtarak road. I think their inspiration come from Godfather mixed with Dubai.

  3. @ Obersever,
    Any news about the Yerevan Closed Market?

    1. @Garo,
      I’m in Gyumri for Christmas holidays and don’t want to cover the Closed Market in Yerevan without personally visiting it.
      From what I know – it is supposed to be closed for renovation from January 1st. Some people say it is going to be turned into a supermarket, but that’s just a rumor. I intend to check on that too. I expect to have all the answers and make a post about the Market by Monday or Tuesday.
      You know – I always pay attention to issues you bring to my attention, but I don’t want to blog about something I know very little of without properly investigating it.

  4. @Observer,
    And that’s why I like to come to you with questions, because I know that the source is legitimate. Looking forward to hearing what the verdict is on the closed market. I see it as a very important place in Yerevan, hopefully it stays.
