Despite warnings from fellow Armenians, Lara Aha at Life in Armenia visited Istanbul in Turkey last week [1] to attend a seminar on women in conflict zones. The Diasporan blogger now resident in Armenia says not only did she feel more at home in Istanbul than Yerevan, but that she also spent a night to remember dancing alongside Turks, Kurds, Georgians, Greeks, Azerbaijanis and others at a popular local club.
