We’ve arrived at Heathrow, our midway point along our 7000 mile journey to Armenia. Our group has been here for some time now–five hours to be exact–touring our terminal in what is said to be the world’s largest and busiest airport.
Our LAX group includes: Rita Yemenidjian, Patil Gharibian, Kareen Sassounian, Marae Sarkuni, Alina Soukasian, Christina Karayan. We met up at Heathrow with Daniel Ohanian, a YC participant from Canada. In less than a day we’ll be in Yerevan where we will meet up with Sanan Shirinian and Nora Kayserian of our group.

These are very exciting times for everyone in the team, some still have yet to come to terms with the reality that they will be at the foothills of Ararat tomorrow morning. Here’s a video blog straight from Heathrow from Daniel Ohanian, who shares his own experiences and feelings thus far.
These are really exciting times. Hope you continue to follow us on our blog!
