Just Another Day in Yerevan

Who said making a cookbook is boring? 

Below is a video from April 22, made about 6-8 jet lagged hours after we arrived in Yerevan. What was intended as a morning of quiet and easy sightseeing turned into witnessing one of the most violent days in the recent Armenian protests against their prime minister Serzh Sargsyan.

In this video, politician and opposition party leader Nikol Pashinyan leads protesters on a march from Yerevan's Republic Square to the nearby suburb of Erebuni. They were met by busloads of police in riot gear. 

This Al Jazeera piece sums up the day's events nicely:
