BESIDES monasteries, there is still plenty to see in Armenia.
In Yerevan, we visited the Erebuni Fortress (Erebuni is the old name of Yerevan), the Matenadaran Library, which has one of the richest depositories of manuscripts and books in the world.
One of the most well-attended abstract art exhibits hereabouts was that of Hong Kong-based and UK-educated and trained Jewelle Yeung, youngest daughter of diamond czar Carlos and Mariquita Salimbangon-Yeung.
Jewelle, born with an enviable artistic streak in her genes, studied at the city and guilds of London Art School with a master’s degree in fine arts-oil painting. Her huge and imposing canvases depict a passion for summits, smog, the weather, with a sprinkling of animals, featuring the powerful horse gallops and graceful flight of out feathered friends.
