So dear readers, i haven’t been posting anything for a few weeks i think it is now ( probably around two) and thats because i am :

a) lazy


b) not really buy but kind of busy

so my millions of fans out there who are excitedly following my life here and counting on updates can gladly spam me with hate a trash mail haha.

So but what have I been doing? After i arrived in Yerevan with my parents ( they visited btw hah) I had a small day at the Goethe centrum, which also had a small event thing at the same day, I talked a while with my boss, broke my mouse which really pissed me off since it was a week Old and bought a new one and then luckily headed back with a group of the children from my school which was taking part in the event. The Center had all kinds of cute stuff: they had a crafts lesson, a small karaoke session and a very adorable and good Musical which really impressed me.

On the way back i had to switch my front seat with a student in the bad because she was feeling ill and so i was stuck with like 13 hyper small school children but it turned out pretty well haha. But by the time we where going around the Sevan those cuties where all so tired and quieted down haha.

Now i also got to meet the granddaughters of Emma: Nari and Emmi, both pretty cool kids, Nari is a bit hyper though. She always insisted that she could play a certain type of card game or chess and i was like: No you dont know how to. Those two kids also taught me alot of Armenian. I started making sentences on my own and connecting two and two and yeah, it definitely was a fun time! On halloween i even painted their faces ( not sure if i can post the pictures here so I wont , sorry :/) and took them to the small park in the center of the town so they coul hang out with the other small halloween freaks haha ( all under 14 , because they dont celebrate halloween in Chambarack).

Otherwise… they kids in the courtyard dont really sow up anymore and it kinda makes me sad, i really liked them and playing football with them and bantering around was fun and like i confronted one of em and they didnt want to tell me ;-; so yeah sad life. Haha.


I have been working on two new projects though, both able to be seen in the sub section.

If anything else happens or I remind myself of something ill be sure to post it in a short Post

The Ayb week

So after the little week of adventure i was spontaneously put to the school in the capital for a week ( to the annoyance of my „room mates“ hah), the Ayb school. The ayb school is probably the richest and best school anyone has ever seen haha. It has a very clean and polished appearance. Amazing architecture with integrated slides from floor to floor and laboratory rooms, robotics lab and much more. Basically my task there would be to help out and help start the Project they are having with the Elite Pforta school in Germany ( which i have never heard from before this ).

Not going to lie, i was pretty disappointing with what i did there the whole week. Sure a well made and healthy free lunch was nice but i basically always went there, sat a round for a bit, maybe did some small task like translating or helping the students sign up to the forum they are using for the project ( which lead to me loosing my USB for my wireless mouse. dont ask.) , talk with some kids or sit in a lesson but that was it haha. My expectations where much higher so thats my mistake 😉

But yeah i always went there with a GG taxi, something like a very cheap uber and took it back.On one ride , I forgot my headphones in it so that bummed me out alot.

Oh and on Wednesday we went to a gallery opening of a Armenian artists in the German embassy. Of course the food was lovely, i got to talk with Jacob a bit again and funnily enough the Italian ambassador and his daughter swung by which was pretty interesting. But thats about it. I am now currently in Chambarack again. I arrived a few hours and its Sunday. Lets hope the next week will be much better 🙂 Definetly not lying about that and probably not missing out any details because i want this done haha

The Weekend After

So after the adventure in the south, we had two days of like National holidayisch days in Yerevan since they  had an Event called Frankophonia, literally a big conference dedicated to like the french culture and language. It was so big that even Prime minister Macron and Justin Trudeu came to visit , it really was crayz haha. The hospitals where only partially operational and schools got the days off.Now the on Saturday, the 3 out of the 4 other volunteers in Yerevan decided to take a small road trip around the capital and look at a few things and just have a good day. I decided to join that group and we became a 4 man squad.

SO the day started with us dipping and renting the car. pretty obvious haha. WE got into the car and drove a bit and noticed that we gotta tank so we pulled into the station and then one of the service employees started to fuel up and one of out members started freaking out and was like : we gotta dip out of the car. First we were really confused but then she said that they where tanking gas ( pretty normal in Armenia) so we where like “ yes if thats the case we dip but can you smell that? Thats gasoline haha“ so that was resolved. So we drove on, with a full tank, and then we followed google maps which turned out to be a mistake since it led us to streets which didnt exist or where like too small and crammed . So we looked at the map without using directions and of course we found the way onto the high street 🙂

So our first stop was Khor Virap, A old monastery which used to house the imprisoned Gregor the Illuminator haha.  below is a picture of all 4 of us doing weird things on the top of the Hill where the monastery lies on. Three weird faces and one weird person taking the picture.

Now at the parking lot the locals where selling the usual stuffs. Souvenirs, religious items and food , so we indulged our self in some Gata, not the best but it did the job .After the we got onto the highway again and drove off to Zvarnots Cathedral. the cathedral was either destroyed by the invading hordes or an earth quake but the ruins are still standing, which already show how beautiful and impressive the whole building would’ve have been. We got in free with our little volunteer cards which had “ UNESCO“ on the corner so we cool like that. We walked through the heat and popped into the museum and looked around there for a bit before popping back into the car.

I dont really remember what we wanted to do after that but we all kinda wernt feeling it so we started heading to the one weird destination on our check list: The Metsamor nuclear powerplant. And as you guessed as we came to about 2 kilometers of it, there was a military check point, and we, the tourists asked the soldiers if it would be okey if we could visit the power plant. Lets just say that as we drove of we all knew that the soldiers would all be having a good laugh after turning us back haha.

Since out little radioactive plan failed we searched for alternatives and since we knew that we were close to one small town another team member of ours was working it, we decided to visit her school and a bakery near it for a small break. I do not know how the small city is called again but the school was nice enough from the outside ( it was locked , a sunday haha ) and the small baked goods we got from the bakery next door where bomb aswell.

So after a small break we updated out plan and decided to make it to the Alphabet Park, a park with small monuments of the Armenian alphabet ( they are very proud of it) untill sunrise. So we drove on again ( I apologize for the stale Blog entry haha) and right before we reached the Park we didnt manage to get off the highway at the right exit so our arrival was delayed by 20 minutes or so, making us miss the sunset. Buuut we did have enough light to make a little fun thing with the monuments. We decided to each take out pictures which each letters from our names so we coul arrange the pictures in such a way that they would spell out names in armenian. Now sorry to let you all down, but i dont have the pictures yet since they are on the camera from Martin,another Volunteer. But i assure you, as soon as I get them ill post em, and you all wont be dissapointed xD

So after that, we kinda where being harrased by some stray dogs which was fun haha but we all survived in the end and we drove off to our final stop, The Observatorium near Yerevan.

After a small complication involving us calling the observatorium for us to get into the place earlier we decided to stay and wait in the Parking lot . There we ate our food in the car haha. We chilled in the car, looked at the stars and just relaxed after a long day. When it was time to go in the guide even spoke english just for us even though there was a mob of Armenians. We found out a few cool stuff too. The telescope they where using for us to look at the starts was german and made out of paper maschee because it had some component to it which had some low like thing which helped us look at the starts better haha, it was probably taken by soviet soldier during their retreat back from WW2. Anyways, after that long day we made it back to the city and enjoyed a good nights sleep.
