Spontaneous boogy by restaurant patrons, including some of our group, to Armenian folk music. Locals were happy to see us gringos dancing and were eager to offer dancing tips. Very festive atmosphere! The music highlighted Armenia's ambiguous location, neither Europe, nor Asia. While Armenians are Christian, and while their life-style practices seem orientated towards European life, their folk music is decidedly "Eastern" in sound and rhythm.
Located in the southern Caucusus, with Asian Anatolia on the west and Moslem Azerbaijan on the east, it seems hard to categorize, at least from a cartographer's point of view, Armenia as Europe.
