Armenian History Museum. Republic Square.
   I got back to the hostel before noon to find one of the hostel employees screaming at a Georgian guest for smoking in the hostel.  An acquiantance who stayed the night in the hostel, Abdulasir explained that he got no sleep because of their partying.  I am glad I went to Lake Sevan instead.  Abdulasir, who I sadly do not have a picture of, is an interesting character.  He is an America-loving Kenyan who decided just 'cuz to spend a month vacationing in Armenia before pursuing a master's degree in compter science in Kuala-Lumpur.  Hoo.  Good luck to him.  I met sveral other people in the hostel.  There was Michelle, the Dutchman, who was traveling around before moving to teach English with his girlfriend in China.  He had spent 3 years of 30-year-life traveling!
   I walked around Yerevan for the last time today and got some delicious Khoravats - Armenian barbeque.  I visited the very disappointing Armenian history.  The exhibits had no Englsh or Russian captions and there were no audioguides.  The aving grace was an exhibit on the horrifying photos of the victims of the Armenian genocide (starved nearly to death, or killed). 
   I am a little sad that I did not get to meet more Armenians - next time I will try harder to find a host on couchsurfers.
