Free breakfast included and after that I strolled down Yerevan city. I personally like the city centre’s layout and planning. It’s using grid iron systems that terminates by one big cirle artery road around with a buffer green belt at the Northeast peripheral of city centre. The upper part of the city is surrounded by mountains on three sides - west,north,east and to the south is where Mount Ararat far in the background. The downtown is accessible on foot. Its rival city, Tbilisi is compared by most people for being the most visited city in Caucasus region, I personally like Yerevan more.
Strolling on the streets I can’t help but being noticed every time locals walk in front of me. Armenian girls are ridiculously good looking (!) stylish and look posh too. Everyone’s wearing black attire and black jacket and I was the only one wearing green warm jacket. I think that’s why they looked at me twice LOL. After 2 hours wandering around I headed back to the hostel and 1 of the hostel staff having a birthday cake ready for her small celebration. One of the guys was friendly asking me to join along as I sat in front of the internet next to them. Cake being cut and a toast was made. Happy Birthday to you!
I went to Kilika central bus station to purchase bus ticket to Tabriz,Iran by local marshutka- a seasoned and old minivan. The mode of transportation other than metro and travelled with the locals. I was experiencing a bit of how locals commuting.
An exciting journey to Iran tomorrow..
