Following Turkish President Abdulla Gull’s historic visit to Armenia, Armenian bloggers are engaged in active discussions – was it a positive step, or a negative one? Was it right for Armenia’s to invite highest Turkish official to Armenia or not? Even the fact Armenian football team lost 0:2 to Turkey, has been completely overshadowed by Turkish president’s visit. There is also an interview with Latvian blogger Artur Mednis.

With some delay I’m uploading the Podcast of the Radio Hay program broadcast last Saturday, dealing with the Eurovision Blogging, as well as featuring an interview with LiveJournal blogger – Akunamatata_Ser, who is sharing his vision of the internet slang – used mostly in LiveJournal and commonly referred to by bloggers as “Olbanskii” – a strange and funny variety of Russian with strange spelling and lot’s of cryptic signs.
Armenian bloggers reported terrible stories of robberies, bribe and blasphemy last week. Among some of the noteworthy posts were Nazarian’s post about shutting down the “Parisian cafe” on Abovyan street, Alefalef‘s discovery, that Beeline is double charging for March and April – thus, technically, robbing its customers, and Athanatoi‘s report, about continuous Georgian attempts to convert Armenian churches in Georgia into “old Georgian’ churches, and the recent case with Surb Norashen Church in Tbilisi – wherby Georgians were planting old Georgian tombstones in the yard of the Church and erasing Armenian inscriptions, changing them for Georgian ones – all of this with photographic evidence.
