We stayed the first night at this charming little hotel in Goris, which is nestled in the mountains and we have decided is a far more picturesque city than Yerevan - the hotel was surrounded by beautiful flower gardens and fruit trees. There were 5 senior couples, the Mission President and his wife, and one of our District Presidents and his wife and other family members - we rode in 3 vehicles - had a great time. We all ate dinner together at the hotel restaurant Friday night (Armenian dolma, lavash, cherry juice, ice cream, and water melon) - then we took our chairs outside to the garden area and held a fireside type meeting.
We went on a 3 day Senior Missionary trip/conference this last weekend. We did alot of traveling to places we had never been in the southern part of the country - even went to the Iranian border. It was soooooo nice to get out of the city - you can imagine how happy Dad was to see animals and agriculture along the way. I will do several posts to cover the highlights. This first picture is of us on Friday morning at Norverank Monastary - this was actually our second visit to this site.
