Our Day With the Bishop and Father Asbed, Lori Region

We crossed the border smoothly and ventured to Vanadzor. The next morning we hired a taxi to take us to the three major medieval churches in the Debed Canyon. We had a most exciting adventure. As soon as we entered Haghpat Monastary we were invited by Father Asbed to tea with the Bishop. They had both formerly served in Jerusalem and Las Vegas and we had many funny conversations in English and Hebrew about dieting.

The Bishop, Tom, Father Asbed, and someone.

Father Asbed gave us a three hour tour of the monastery.

Where's Waldo?

Our friendly taxi driver who surprised us with a picnic. We love Armenia!
