Can you save money?

Yes! - Oct 15, 2014
Yes, if you don't travel too much outside of Armenia. - Sep 19, 2011
Yes, as long as you spend prudently. - Oct 14, 2009
No. The dollar depreciated 30 percent against the Armenian dram in my two years. The COLA didn't keep up. Gas is $5 per gallon for the cheap stuff. Tickets out of the country, even to nearby UAE runs $350-$800 per person only to as far as Paris or London. - Jul 26, 2008
Yes, unless you eat at Phonecia and Dolmana all the time and buy lots of carpets at inflated tourist prices. - Jan 9, 2008
