Today was really cool. I really enjoyed learning more about some historic sites of Armenia. The first place we visited was the Cathedral of St. Hripsime. It was a cool little church that was impressive in looking at how it was built so long ago. The Cathedral of Echmiadzin really made me realize how close we are to Israel and Jerusalem. It is pretty crazy to think that the spear that was in that cathedral is possibly the spear that was put into Christ’s side when he was on the cross. The history of religion in Armenia is very intriguing. Zvartnots was a lot of fun as well. It was different in that it was in ruins. Eating berries, jumping off a wall semi-simultaneously, and being in a quick rainstorm all added to the experience. It was a really fun day on this day that is celebrated as independence day here in Armenia.
