However, I have conceived a strange desire to go there. Not least having seen this 1982 Soviet era guidebook someone has typed in or scanned. The bit about the metro is particularly fine.
The quote I like the most is "Wherever you go in Yerevan, watch out for pot holes as you walk, but fear not pick pockets, assaults, and other kinds of crime which are unheard of here."
I had a look for a guide book in Waterstones in Reading when we were there on Sunday, but sadly the guidebooks went staight from Argentina to Australia.
