Armenian Daily Bread
You might have noticed that pictures of bakeries and bread have been showing up here on the blog. While in South Africa I got the opportunity to work in a bakery and I felt a strong connection to it. It's enjoyable, physical work and I valued the fact that people get to enjoy good food as result of your labor. There are many theological connections to bread as well so it has been fun to meet people whose vocation is lived out in the bakery.
Here are some of the bakeries we've come across in Armenia in our short time. Anna does an amazing job getting these photos while simultaneously translating from Russian so I can be part of the conversation too!
The next set of pictures is of a lavash bakery. Lavash is one of the national foods of Armenia and it's delicious. We stumbled upon a bakery where the women were just finishing up for the day and they were glad to have us take a look. I'm hoping to see the whole lavash process from start to finish while we're in Armenia, but this was a good intro.
