<b>Armenia</b><br>
<br>
What recent newspaper headlines overlook is Armenia's rugged beauty and its mix of ancient history and modern convenience. Armenia is small (about the size of L.A.) and is easily visited in a one-week vacation. It offers opportunities for all sorts of activities: jet skiing on Lake Sevan, hiking in Zankezour or Lori, wine tasting in Areni, visiting ancient monasteries, and shopping and clubbing in Yerevan. Armenians are friendly and hospitable, and the exchange rate is favorable. The political situation is generally stable and, because it's predominantly Christian, the culture is very Western.<br>
