After spending the day driving around to what seemed like some of the smallest most insignificant little villages on earth, this day in Armenia ended with a spontaneous visit to some friends of friends. True to form, the Armenian hospitality didn’t disappoint and after sweets and tea we headed off with the men to round up the horses before night fall. Here you can see one of the sons riding bare-back towards us, skillfully guiding the horse at full pace. This also happened to turn into my first ever horse riding experience, bareback and all. However that photo will stay hidden away as it was not anywhere near as graceful and manly as this one!
