About my life in Armenia, about being a mom and an activist, working for women's rights.
The challenges and benefits of raising a family in a post-soviet republic.
Finding a place, my place and calling it HOME.


Manti night with the staff of the Women's Resource Center

Varanta and Vayk helped me prepare our favorite dish, Manti, and share it with my staff from the Women's Center. It took us 3 hours, Varanta stayed till the end helping and chatting endlessly. It is a tradition in Armenia to celebrate the new year by visiting relatives and friends houses and feasting with them. Most of the Restaurants just started opening today, but very few people are on the streets or outside. Everything is still slow. People are recovering from the holidays, from all the drinking and the eating...I started working 2 days ago. The center was frozen, all the water pipes were broken again this year. So we are trying to heat the place for the past couple of days with the staff. The center reopens for the public on monday and we are getting ready to start all the activities soon.
