We received a surprise Christmas package from our good friends Matt, Jen, and Lily today. Among the many gifts was the March 2004 issue of National Geographic, which features an article titled "The Rebirth of Armenia." Author Frank Viviano documents beautifully the turbulent history of this land and takes readers into the very lives of its resilient people. And in classic NG style, there are stunning photographs on every page, some lively and colorful, others intimate and bittersweet, all of them breathtaking. The story of this nation and its citizens is incredible and inspiring.
It took a bit of searching, but I found the article online, though unfortunately, the impressive images do not accompany the text. If you'd like to read it, click here!
EDIT: Ok, I did a bit more reading and searching, and found some related photos and notes. Check it out...lots of really neat stuff!
