Driving to Tatev Monastery is one of the more scary things I have done in my life, and I wasn't even prepared for it. The president of Armenia were to give a speech later that day, at Tatev Monastery, so we had to get up very early and drive there in a van, while it was still dark. To get there, you had to drive to the bottom of a canyon, and the gravel road had a ton of hairpins. The driver apparently knew this road by heart. He didn't feel it particularly necessary to look at the road. I wasn't too sure about that. While driving, he looked back into the van while telling stories, and at the same time he texted on his phone. When we got to the bottom and crossed a bridge, he pointed out a car, lying on the roof a bit further down in the absolute bottom of the canyon. He told it fell down the day before, and two people got killed. That didn't affect his driving though and did do anything to make me feel any safer. Scary experience.
