[ Autumn, 2005 ] Lake Sevan in Armenia is at 1900m above sea level.
This is one of the largest lakes in the high altitude in the world.
But during Soviet era, the water was used for irrigation and that made the lake shrunk considerably.
The dark colour churches are now on a peninsula, but originally it was an island in the lake.
When we were here, we saw a beautiful rainbow.
Seeing that, our guide Naila told us that in Armenia people say that if you pass through a rainbow, your sex will change.
Interesting, isn’t it.
We had lunch on the lake.
Main dish was a fried fish caught in this lake, but I still do not know what fish that was.
Naila’s pronunciation sounded like ‘sick fish’ and I remember there was a stir among my tour members.
