Armenia: Reflections on National Psyche

Life in the Caucasus, a blog by Peace Corps volunteer John, posts reflections on Armenia as his service comes to an end after two years. The blog summarizes a few key points and opinions on how Armenia's potential is often clouded by the country acting as its own worst enemy, including the national psyche when it comes to Turkey, Azerbaijan, Mount Ararat and distrust for one another that has led to corruption and apathy. Amid foreign aid and diasporan remittances,  it also notes the large lack of self-sufficiency Armenia is faced with.
