"Two older women, called Tatik in Armenian, would be sitting along the road I took into town everyday. Without fail, I could expect a comment on what I was wearing, what I had bought from the store, or where I was headed so quickly. These women were intimidating in the beginning, but I learned to love interacting with them everyday." - Peace Corps Volunteer Emily Hass #latergram #photoofthedday #Armenia #culture #peacecorps #women #tatik
Volunteer Danny Lovell and his host mother enjoy a snack together in their small village in Armenia. In the beginning, Lydia’s family lived in the home as well, but they eventually moved to Germany. Though Lydia spoke in a heavy and difficult to understand dialect, she and Danny were able to find a way to communicate.
