having grown up in New England, there is nothing more fabulous than a beautiful snow that blankets the city and serves for some great entertainment (snow fight, anyone)? My older daughter Alexandra has been anxiously awaiting Armenia’s first real snow fall and it finally started coming this past week. And lots of it. While we haven’t been hit as badly as some other parts of Eastern Europe, we did get some accumulation that did provide for some wonderful entertainment. And this is the first year in my almost ten years in Armenia that I recall the city actually clearing roads (and some side walks) so well.
