After yesterday’s active day of sightseeing, today’s schedule was more calm. The group had the pleasure of being part of the Evangelical Church of Armenia’s Sunday programs. Some of us attended church service, while others volunteered in Sunday School, Childcare, and Junior Care.
Following the service, those who had relatives were given the opportunity to spend time together. Those who stuck with the group enjoyed a nice lunch at Zeituna Restaurant in Yerevan with Badvelis from the church. Shortly after, the interns that stayed for lunch took a Yerevan Bus Tour that gave them the opportunity to see a large portion of the city while driving around.
Around six pm, everyone in the group made their way back to the AMAA Center. We then, decided to walk over to a pizzeria nearby. See the picture of Khachapuri that was ordered.
After dinner, we were walking toward Hraparak (The Republic Square) to get ice cream, we got caught up in rain with hail and lightning. We all gathered underneath an awning and waited for the rain to pass. Once it cleared, we continued to the town center to get our ice cream.
The remainder of our evening is currently being spent rooting for our favorite soccer team(s) in the UEFA Euro 2016 final! (France v. Portugal)
