We asked some locals for a restaurant . . . they said, “Follow us.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Seems to be full.

I think we are going to eat at his house.

Noraly, Traveler: “Hi. Hi. I’m Noraly. Nice to meet you”.

Noraly, Traveler: “Look at this amazing meal. There is vodka. There is bread. This they make themselves. And this is from the garden, I think also. And this is some fish.”
Host: “Sevan.”

Noraly, Traveler: “Sevan — ah from Sevan Lake.”

And then they have homemade juice which is really really nice super refreshing. I can’t really pin-point what it is made from, but it is super delicious.

So yeah; best meal so far in Armenia. I have not been here very long, but this is really, really nice. And they are so friendly, we try to communicate a little bit.

So Bon Appetit.

And more food is coming.

Noraly, Traveler: “This is egg? Bak, bak, bak!”

Some eggs, and salad she made and this is egg with, I think, tomato or something.

So more food is coming and coming. Now we also have this. I haven’t tried it yet; it looks like macaroni.

Noraly, Traveler: “And this? Shoesam?”

So going to try that also. There is just food coming and coming. It is amazing this is super super delicious.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Noraly, Traveler: “Spasiba. Thank you very much. Dasvidanya. Bye. Bye.
