Discover Armenian outside Armenia
What makes Glendale stand out is that it is home to a signifcant number of Armenian persons-the largest population outside of Armenia itself. As you walk down Glendale streets, you may very likely hear "barev" as well as "hello". How interesting to have a place to where it would be common to hear and experience all that is Armenian and also not be far away from what's Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, Korean, Russian, etc. Several shops have bilingual English-Armenian postings. Personally, I like the curving shape of the Armenian alphabet. See what I mean in this movie poster pictured! Armenian culture is well promoted at the renowned Alex Theater, which hosts a good number of plays, musical acts from Armenia throughout the year. Another way to experience Armenian culture is to try the food- at a restaurant like Raffi's or try a common Middle Eastern or kebob(kabob) restaurant in teh city which will likely have Armenian influence.
