I had a wonderful time in Armenia. There was so much to do in the short time we were there. The weekend trips to monasteries outside of Yerevan were beautiful. The food was amazing, even when it was staring at me. I will miss the fresh cherries and gata. My time at the Eurasian Partnership Foundation taught me a lot about research and opportunities after school. The people there are incredible and passionate about their work, something not seen too often. The views from the Cascade and other points throughout the country were truly breathtaking and I can say there is nothing like it anywhere in the world. It was a little too warm for my liking, but I would like to go again in April when it is cooler. I would like to see more of the country as well as hiking to higher views of the area. I will miss seeing the mixture of modern American, British, and German cars and the old Soviet cars sharing the roads with the herds of cows. I loved the mix of Armenian and American music in bars and taxis because it gave me something I knew and made me experience new genres and sounds. I do not regret being a part of the LION LC, even with the conference preparations, and I would encourage everyone, at some point, to travel to Armenia as it is a truly unique country in a globalized world.
