Despite the heat, they had a short tour of Kapan with Armen, saw the monuments close to the camp, and hiked to Halidzor Fortress and Vahanavank Monastery.
Today some surprise visitors also turned up a the ARK office; a German couple biking from Australia to Germany. They were led to the office by some of ARK's neighbors. Claudia and Johann, more friendly international travelers passing through Kapan! They were suntanned and road-weary, but had smiles on their faces as they walked their bikes in the heat to buy a SIM card. They had just come from Iran and are headed to Georgia next. You can follow all their interesting adventures on their Facebook page and their blog.
