in the following posts you’ll see our videos from the last trip to Lori, you’ll see #coaf - children of armenia building designed by Paul Kaloustian, 12th century Kobayr monastery which looked much cooler when they did not start the restoration work, and Odzun church and village. #walk #armenia #kobayr #odzun #friends

this is an amazing building, designed by paul kaloustian, i know him. it belongs to coaf - children of armenia, they have buses, which bring kids from the vicinity to classes - drawing, music, theatre, dances, yoga, programming, various natural languages. they also have a hotel, in that building, so staying in it helps the project. it is not expensive, but the location and design are amazing. the centre built with modernistic aesthetics in mind. in hotel you can see naked concrete walls. i like that very much. stayed there a couple of days ago, hostpitability was extra ordinary even by armenian norms.

one of my friends reminded me of this channel. i have actually been in the recording studio in Vanadzor, which you can see at the end of the video, and Lernapat is the village very close to Vanadzor, like almost a suburb. the guys visit villages, film the life there, talk to the people, and collect songs. then record those with the aesthetics close to them - they like rock.

i personally have mixed feelings, i am tired of rock, and i am not sure turning folk songs in to rock is good idea, but anyway - this will be interesting for you to watch and listen, i believe.

says: do you know who is the main promoter of armenia? it’s turkey. if not turkey, nobody would remember us. if not turkey, who time after time remembers and says something about armenia, that we are bad guys, or that there was never a genocide. thus someone living in island may think, stop, wait, which armenia, and try to find it on the map, which is indeed not easy.

continues: i would go further and claim, that turkey saved armenians. when turkey conducted genocide of armenians, armenians practically did not exist as nation. in turkey and russia they were forgetting how to speak armenian, and were speaking empire languages. there was no single party that would claim the independence of armenia is its goal. instead the goals were to make turkey or russia a better countries, so that equality for all, would mean also equality for armenians. the genocide is what forced armenians to face that they are different. because they are treated differently. the genocide was the reason for them to remember that they need security, army, borders. if not the genocide, most likely we would not have this armenia today. so thank you turkey, this nation would not exist, if not you. we would dissolve like every old nation does. we did not want to survive, but you were saying - hey armenians, comon, lets play war, hey you, defend yourself, take this weapon. yes, take the weapon, we are gonna play with you.
