Becoming familiar with Armenian culture is not complete without get-togethers with the population. People are very hospitable and friendly. We will visit a village and see how lavash (traditional bread) is baked in the tonir (pit in the ground). The local dance group will perform for us.
Prior to our visit, we will be taught how to toast the Armenian way, a very important part of the meal! Toasting is a must, drinking is optional.
