Yerevan - Post Report Question and Answers

What do you wish you had known about this particular city/country before moving there?

How polluted it would get in the winter. The embassy eventually provided air purifiers. - Jan 2022

How undeveloped the country is, how poor the infrastructure is, how long it takes to drive anywhere, how much local driving habits would bother me day in and day out, and how bored I would be. I did not expect to give up on trying to get simple things done, because it was too complicated and it took too long. I did not expect to enjoy living in Armenia as little as I did. - Aug 2021

I wish I would have known how bleak the winters are and how polluted it becomes. I lived in Russia multiple times, but the winters here affect me more than the long dark winters of Russia. Also I wish I would have known how difficult it can be to get out of Armenia. A quick trip to Europe is not a thing here because of the lack of flights and the fact they all leave in the middle of the night. - May 2021
