Our way to the Areni Wine Festival 2015 we’ve hitchhiked… as always. The driver who gave us a lift was a young guy named Aleksan. He lived in Nagorno-Karabakh and became a father a few days ago. “I hate to be alone on the road, so it’s good that I met you,” he said. We got off at the village of Areni, wishing him a safe journey. While three of us, me, Nane and our friend Edgar, walked to the village centre where the main events were taking place, I couldn’t help but notice that the wine festival was transforming into a barbecue and kebab festival. There were probably more food vendors than wine makers offering to taste their old and new wines. But in four years, the festival for us got more meaning than just driking madness, so we ignored these changes and spent some wonderful hours with our friends before hitchhiking back to Yerevan.
