    I found Armenia a developing country with impressive economic groth. I was surprised with their historical manuments, churches and landscape. I never knew much about Armenia, until I was invited lately to a conference. I am satisfied that I could find the best services available for the tourism industry.
    The entire trip was great, thanks to the organizers that did all the best efforst to make us be in comfort. On the other hand, we have been disturbed a bit with the bed and breakfast hostel we stayed in Dilijan city. Dili Villa, located at Miasnikyan Str. Our stay was for one day, but its not usuall for us all to acomodate in a dirty non hygenic place with no foreign speaking staff. I urge the Armenian government to take further actions in order to forbiden that place being offered for tourists.
