Between Jujevan and Ijevan in the Armenian mountains

September 8th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

After eating a dieting breakfast of plain chocolate with the few remaining biscuits accompanied by unsweetened tea, and having said good bye to Mushanak, our host, we have rolled out of Jujevan.
According to our map the main road ran away from the Azerbaijan border, the road near the border was an inferior road, but eventually both led to the same place. In reality everything was the other way round.
We managed to roll on good quality ashfelt.
I was cycling on an empty stomach in the beautiful Armenian mountans.
About 200 metres above the village we stopped in a hairpin bend. We were just wondering and admiring the glorious countryside. We could see across to Azerbaijan and we loved the countryside that we could see there. Not to mention Armenia. I found myself an excellent stand for making a video:


A car stopped in front of us with an Iranian numberplate. It was Rambod with his wife and tiny little daughter.
Finally at around 1100m the road started dropping again and we could start the well deserved descent.

In one of the bends a large white jeep with „World Vision” on its side stopped right next to us. A man and a kid got out. We took a picture with them in front of the beautiful countryside for a background.
The lake was already in Azerbaijan, an in the North we saw a mountain rise out of the countryside in a sugarloaf shape.
Rolling downhill into the valley of the river Aghstev was an adventure.
In Idjevan we were the guests of the „World Vision” UN charity organisation.
We ate Lavas with lots of rice.
At night we could sleep in the jeep parked up in the carpark behind the building.
It was excellent to gain a little insight into the work of such an organisation. We thank them for every bit of help, I really don’t know how I could have managed without them!

    Sziasztok!

    Ma reggel úgy 8 körül találtam rátok az interneten, azóta szerintem nettó sok órát olvasva szépen végigolvastam a történetet az elejétől, minden egyes posztot. És azt kell hogy mondjam hogy megtaláltam az egyik kedvenc olvasmányomat az elkövetkező két évre.

    Szinte hihetetlen amit tesztek, de iszonyatosan jó arcok vagytok. Nagyon jó olvasni a bejegyzések a sok-sok vendégszerető népekről.

    Nagyon igaz hogy a jó emberek vonzzák a jó embereket.

    Kitartást és még sok-sok élményt kívánok nektek, remélem sokat olvashatok még rólatok.

    Ui.: kár hogy nem vagytok egy kicsit jobban természetfanatikusok, de hát ne legyek telhetetlenek…
