Here is how Virginie describes an episode from her travel to Armenia:
“Well the weirdest experience for was when I was in Armenia, we, a friend and I, took a taxi to go to Goris, in the south. We didn't speak Armenian, a few words in Russian, the taxi driver doesn't speak English or French...no possible communication! On the highway, we meet a truck, the taxi driver seemed to know him, he noded to him...and then he stops...in the middle of nowhere! The truck stops too. He gets out of the taxi, close all the door, so we were lock up inside, and goes to see the truck driver... We were frightened, we were thinking "ok, they are going steal all of what we have...they are going to kill us! ... we had a beautiful life ... it's ok". After about fifteen minutes, half an hour, it seemed to be so long! the taxi driver comes back...with apricots! for us, he just saw we were hungry.” :) Virginie Descamps
So, the conclusion is, don’t judge without knowing and let yourself to enjoy all the hospitability of the new country and people.
P.S. Thank you Virginie for letting me to share this story.
