Monday Morning Blues – Mount Ararat in Armenia

Mount Ararat is an almost mystical place that you hear about as a child for being the final resting place of Noah’s Ark once the flood waters had subsided.

This rather grainy photo was taken from the train as we approached Armenian capital Yerevan shortly after sunrise following a long overnight journey from Batumi in Georgia.

The mountain straddles the Armenian/Turkish border, perhaps a symbol of the non-existent relationship between the two nations as all borders remain closed due to the Armenian Genocide of 1915 in which 1.5m Armenians are said to have lost their lives at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.
