The Kond is a very old part of Yerevan, right in the middle of big buildings. It’s a collection of very small houses with sheet metal roofs, stuck between narrow alleys and flights of stairs.  it used to be one room for one family, now the families use several  such rooms as their home. I wanted to go there because of how it looked on the map (no streets, just little squares on top of each other, very enigmatic), and I got invited for my first Armenian coffee there, along with Artyom and another traveller!
