The Jetson House ( Meet the Jetsons ) was quite unusual, but its surroundings were surreal. The house was on Lake Sevan, a resort in the former Soviet Republic of Armenia (now an independent country). I went there as part of a scheduled visit when I took a group of tourists to the Soviet Union. The interesting thing was that we were led to expect a quite ritzy resort and, indeed, the view was quite lovely (will post another day). The beach, however, was not, well, what I would call 'ritzy' -- and I don't just mean the big pebbles that covered it, or even the locals, though both were something to behold. The photo above shows the high-class changing booths and the photo on the left would, I think, easily qualify for another Worldless Wednesday post! Can you see the dandelion coming through? I love that.
Originally from New York, I spent many years in Belgium, as well as six months in the former USSR. I'm happily living stateside now, but I've taken many photos along the way and I'd like to share some. On a different note, I'm doing my best to turn the Brit hubcap into a Yank!
