Summer Friends


Summer holidays are “the best,” say friends Vilen and Martin, because they have long days to play soccer in their village in Armenia.

“In this part of our village, the only children are me and Martin. So, when summer comes, we are mostly out in the yard playing soccer. I love it; it is so much fun spending time with your best friend and playing ball,” 9-year-old Vilen shares.

Vilen’s mother, Lilit, adds with a laugh, “I usually have to call him back home so that he reads for a bit; otherwise, he would play all day long.

“Living in a rural area has its benefits,” she continues. “Children breathe fresh air, they eat healthy farm food — fresh eggs, fresh dairy products, and the bread we bake ourselves. In cities and towns, children usually need to go to the countryside for summer holidays to spend time in nature, but children of our village live next to the forest, where the air is always fresh.”
