Ms. Sue Fullam, Peace Corps Volunteer in Vachagan, Armenia, a small village just up the mountain from Kapan. Vachagan is a village of about 500 people and Sue teaches English there at the school. The school itself holds about 35 students. Vachagan is one of the last villages on the way up the slopes of Mount Khustup, the second tallest mountain in Armenia. The village landscape is so steep most houses are comfortable nested into the hillsides and there are shared garden spaces located in smaller, flatter ravines.
