Armenia - Day 5

Wednesday, July 9, 2008
Day 5 was another guided tour, with a visit to Garni and Geghard.

Garni is believed to have been constructed in the 1st century. It was destroyed by an earthquake and reconstructed in recent years.

After that was a visit to Geghard, which is neat monastery carved into the side of a mountain.

I think this is one of my favorite pictures I've ever taken

Tying a hankerchief around a tree branch supposedly brings good luck, hence this mess.

At this point I had developed a nasty blister on my foot and frankly I didn't want to walk any more. The rest of the day was spent filling out postcards and packing for the long flight back home tomorrow morning.
