From breakfast table I have a view on Mt Ararat.
Near the city is the palace that is supposed to be the place of 1001 nights. Among nicely restored architecture there is a pyramid remembering the first climber of Ararat, prof Parrot from Tartu University, Estonia. The thing has been erected by the Estonian embassy.
On towards Ani, ignoring Turkish border guard people who feel the need to inspect pictures I have made of the colorful mountains.
Ani was once the capital of the Armenian kingdom. Must have been crowded. I'm the only visitor now.
