Yerevan is also getting a new (but short) highway.

Traffic has gotten so bad in the last decade (always a sign of an improving economy, especially since the population has decreased since then), that the Government will build a 3.5km highway linking the city center to the eastern suburbs.

Design is complete, and construction will commence soon, with completion in 2 years.

It will cost $10 million, completely funded by the Lincy Foundation. (Lincy Foundation is the charity foundation of MGM multi-billionaire Kirk Kerkorian, an Armenian-American; Lincy has provided hundreds of millions of dollars to Armenia. Armenia may have been unlucky in history, but it is very lucky to have Kirk Kerkorian on their side.)

Just a quick update on the NORTH AVENUE project.

To recap: North Avenue is a pedestrian-only street of offices, housing, retail and shops that is being constructed in central Yerevan. It is expected to be completed in 2007.

The first section (about 20-25% of the project) is almost ready. These pictures are from a few weeks ago.









Construction continues on the remaining portion.









Plans of the full project -- it's huge!

wow very interesting finally to see what happens in Armenia.

The borders of Europe and Asia are very vague, I would say Georgia and Armenia are Europe, because they are christian, Azerbaijan is Europe because of links to former two. But further south Iran and Turkey that is Middle East already - Asia

The general standard delineation of Europe includes all the Aegean Islands, but not Asia Minor, follows the sea of Marmara to the black sea, then along to the midline of the Caucasus to the Caspian sea, then follows this up to the Ural river, up through the Ural Mountains to the Arctic Ocean.

By this definition Europe has several countries that are partially in Europe, partially in Asia. Turkey, Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan are all bi-continental, lying in both Europe and Asia. Of these, only the majority of Russia's population falls in Europe. All these other countries have far more people in Asia than in Europe.

As for Armenia, it lies south of the main Caucasus mountains, in the lesser Caucasus. It is therefore entirely in Asia. Many countries near Europe, but not technically in it share many characteristics with true European countries, but they remain outside, geographically speaking. Armenia, Cyprus, Israel, Morocco, and others are outside Europe.

Religion should not determine Europeanness. Europe has a largely Christian past but paganism and Islam have left a major impact upon it. Currently millions of Muslims live in Europe, and many, such as Albanians, Bosnians, and Turks have lived there for hundreds or thousands of years. Currently Many Europeans are Atheists, this does not make them Un-European. Morocco and Armenia may resemble Europe in several ways, but they are outside it. Albania and Macedonia are within it, this is reality.

Armenia is a beautiful country with wonderful people, architecture, crafts, history, and tradition. It is a joy to see it growing so well out of the poverty that engulfs it currently. I am only worried about the extreme nationalism and expansionist goals of the country that demand war against Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey. I think this type of national over-zealousness is very dangerous. I share the same concern for many people in Turkey, where a similar phenomenon exists, though expansionism is much rarer in Turkey than Armenia. This mentality has led to the senseless and savage murder of Christians in Turkey, and of Muslims in Nagorno-Karabakh. I hope these nationalist countries can find peace and calm manners, in which problems can be discussed in a civilized manner.

Thanks for the pics, looks like the country is rapidly developing. Maybe one day the three Caucasus countries will become close allies like the Baltic states.
