Hi everybody, Emma here. Today after dad left for building we had just had a breakfast of eggs and pancakes. We were drawing and reading in our rooms. We slowly made our way to the restaurant where we were going to meet the orphans. We wandered around the market, being careful not to step in the huge puddles left from the rainshower in the early morning but of course it was too tempting!!! When we met the children at the resturant we played a variety of games, which were mostly inspired by yesterdays games, including about ten rounds of charades!

We regretted to say goodbye, but we will see them again in a few ... read more

Hi everybody! We'd like to start today's blog with a special mention to Grandpa Lou, it's his birthday! (Tsnundd shnorhavor in Armenian). We started our travels on Saturday, with a full day of travel. After flying to Armenia via Russia, we arrived at our hotel at eleven- but not too late for kebab. The next day we had a meeting with our organiser, which was followed by a visit to the lively Yerevan Market. After a fantastic lunch In a (unexpectedly) nice restaurant, we drove to Dilijan, the city we are spending our time in. We arrived just in time for a fantastic dinner of dolmas at our accommodation 'Dili villa' which we strongly reccomend. On Monday, we all began our first day of work. Dad had to get up earlier than everybody else because his ... read more
