Armenian Brandy Tour

Today we went on a tour of the Brandy Factory at 9:30 A.M. The Armenian Brandy Company has been around since the late 19th century and continued to produce throughout the Soviet Period. It was a fun experience, made more so by the fact that we tried three different types of Brandy. Brandy is apparently now an after-breakfast drink. It was interesting to see the different tastes that the brandy acquires from aging. Unfortunately, the factory was sold to the French company Pernod in the late 90's which I was unaware of.

Tonight I will be meeting the friend of one of my professors from Tufts, and having dinner with him at his home in Yerevan.

I've also been playing basketball on Tuesday nights. I'm a power forward in Armenia, and the competition is a bit lacking, but it is fun just the same.
