Benches of Yerevan: Tatevik Vardanyan [Photo]

Editor’s note: At the end of any long week, bliss might be a stroll through the autumnal streets of a city colored by the pinkish hue of its preferred building stone. An occasional stop at a free bench to observe passers-by, nap, or do nothing at all might also be in order. Although it’s winter now, Tatevik Vardanyan, in her debut for The Armenite, takes us there, to the open-seated places that wait for the next interested loiterer. We present Benches of Yerevan.

  1. Not a soul in any of these pictures, but i’m caught feeling as if i’m looking back at a picture of some event in my early life filled with my grandpa, and all the warmth that one could feel from that comfortable memory. These are in a word, magnificent.

  2. I know that green bench with the shopping/coffee bag next to it! I can’t believe it’s featured on here. I felt like I was back in Yerevan on a Spring morning walking from Opera to my mother’s apartment and taking a rest with my son on the bench. Thank you Tatevik for these memories and the walk down memory lane.

  3. always interested in pploee who have radically different opinions. Many time I have shared my not so mainstream views and radically different opinions. yet, I’ve seen no interest from you. whats very peculiar to me is how I’ve read some similar radically different opinions & views posted by other visitors/commenters here and you always finding an interest with them. hmmm .very peculiar, biased towards them? > I understand the pploee who say this phrase: poor or wealthy or wealthy???? since when in Hayastan do the wealthy complain about anything? what problems could they possibly have and/or empathize with the poor?? what problems could arise for them? which wealthy luxury destination to visit that particular month? or which luxury brand shopping district to visit??? ohhh poor us rich ppl, we are having problems deciding. we dont know which to visit this year rodeo drive in bev hills or champs elysee in paris. or maybe they having a problem on which phat ass overpriced luxury vehicle to drive that particular year?? bentley or rolls royce?? hmmm .problems they have indeed !I love our Hayastan as much as you or any REAL Hay doesIt does make me very sad & angry to see that you living in dilapidated old soviet shit building conditions and driving old shit soviet golf cart with engine.however, lets be real here. you not working in the criminal mafiya or elitar network, are you? you dont have a very nice expensive luxury brand store on northern blvd., do you? you don’t own 20 factories, 8-10 of which wont be active, and having our Hayrenakic do all the work for you while you collecting all the profits, do you? the answer is no. you are a journalist/blogger in Yerevan and last I checked there are HUNDREDS in your same field & position. you get paid shit. its not as if azatutyan (or whomever is your employer) will pay you thousands of dollars every month for you to move on up in the world. I dont put the blame on you for choosing what you do and loving it, thats your business, not mine. however, you will never get ahead by working what we in america refer to as dead-end job. meaning there is no opportunity for you to get ahead and working in same position, doing the same shit every day in & out, while getting paid with crumbs left on the table by those who eat up most of the bread. not only they eating all the bread, but the bastards are having cheese with it too. and we all know from Observer’s blogs how much he likes the cheese dam it, LoL :)I am happy you are happy, but lets face the reality and bottom line. you are living in poverty or what is considered as poverty there in Hayastan. I commend you for wanting to live and remain there and all while trying to support wife & children. indeed you are a real man, I could never do what you do. then again, no wife & children would ever want me 🙁 All of us who read and comment here are a joke, you are the real deal HAY who is living there and having much difficulties while the rest of us are living like god dam kings as if we are sitting on golden thrones of some sort. unlike others who pretend, I dont pretend to know what its like to live Hayastan poor . I am poor, but I am western amerikaci poor its NOT the same as Hayastan poor that I can openly admit . being poor in shit ugly america, its like middle to upper class in Hayastan. personally, I wouldn’t mind trading places with you. if you want, come here and take my place, but you will suffer financially here as well if you are not involved in a mafiya/elitar type network and/or knowing/being connected to the right ppl. although, a low-level journalist here can make $20-25k/yr at entry level vs. the I dont know how much you making there $500-1000/mo.???they say that everyone has to pull his/her own weight and we have to supposedly earn our way thru life. ok, but thats a crock of shit made up by the rich (1%’ers) to brainwash everyone else (the 99%’ers) to think that way so that we are always in the stuck in same place in the same time for all of our physical lives. to get rich and/or succeed in life (other than having wife & family) you must be in that 1%. I found long time ago, there is NO such thing as earning your way thru life and/or pull your own weight, and everything will fall into place and you will be a success..that is all BULLS***. you have to be made by others, others have to want to help you and allow you in their networks to make you rich/successful. and only way you, I, and others can ever be in that 1% is if we are as ruthless, evil, greedy, selfish, self-centered, arrogant, cocky, physically good looking, not having a care in world for others, and heartless-soulless as they areI wish we can all unite and do something big to change it all. unfortunately, not everyone likes each other, not everyone can please each other. that there lies the big problem. we dont love/respecting/accepting each other. always hating/discriminating and out to ruin each other. ppl dont grow up, they always stuck in that 5th grade/high school bully mode mind set. I’m good looking & rich, therefore I’m better than you. I hang with the cool kids, therefore I’m better than you. ara who the f*ck made up these ridiculous sick & twisted rules? oh I forget all the cool good looking rich kids whom are now ruling the planetfine, let all us piss poor ugly losers unite and destroy the good looking rich elitar motherf***ers, then we can become the new good looking rich elitar and make things right again, che? LoooooooL !!!!!!
