This all happened because I have an assistant who I’ve worked with for five years, Sona Movsesian, and she is always very active on behalf of the Armenian community of Los Angeles, and she is always talking about Yerevan. A few years ago, she asked me to wear a Yerevan T-shirt and she took a picture of me wearing [it], and she put it on Facebook … and a lot of Armenians saw it and were very excited. And I finally said to Sona: ‘Why don’t I take you to Armenia?’ because she has never been there before. I went to a lot of different places and had a lot of really fun interactions. We tried to explore as much of Yerevan and Armenia as we could … So I think people will be surprised at how much we actually accomplished while we were here.
