Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh

Asia-Armenia-Echmiadzin  This Cathedral in Echmiadzin dates from 301 and is a World Heritage Site. Armenia is a fantastic country to visit. So much history here. Very friendly people . 

This was posted in the small post office near Echmiadzin. I am glad I did that. I posted some cards from the Capital Yerevan but they are one of the few times I never received the postcards even though I mailed them from the Main Post office.  

Asia-Armenia-Tatev  More Monasteries here. They all had their own characteristics and all were enjoyable to visit.Yerevan was also excellent to hang out at night and people watch.  

The Postmark here is very faint on the scan. 

Asia-Nagorno Karabakh-Stepanakert  This is a very famous Sculpture here . "We are the Mountains ". This area is beautiful to visit. Got a ex Tank driver to take me from Yerevan to Stepanakert. An excellent driver. I think the tank must have been a formula one type!! Very friendly people . You could see the effects of the war with the Muslem buildings destroyed. But they were starting to repair them. You get a visa for here from the "Embassy" in Yerevan . Mountains and more Mountains. The Postcard was right. 

I was not sure if this Postcard would go through the mail. But it did. It has a  beautiful Miniature sheet from Nagorno Karabakh. Excellent Post office and keen to sell and show you the stamps that were issued.
