Travel Diaries: Armenia – April 24th Centennial

IMG_4967

I was very fortunate to be able to attend this year’s April 24th commemorations in Armenia as it marked 100 years since the Armenian Genocide. Ofcourse every year we remember and commemorate our ancestors, but this year was a very different experience to me. Not only because it was the centennial but actually being in Armenia had a completely different feel than any other year. People were all there united under the same cause and the city was alive with the armenian diaspora visiting from all across the world. Highlights included visiting the April 24th memorial, System of a down free concert, and seeing old friends and meeting new ones from across the world.
