Regular price $ 19.95 $ 0.00

By Yervand Markarian

I was a man born outside my ethnic fatherland which by the time of my birth had ceased to exist. Armenia had become divided into the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic and Northeastern Turkey. As incongruous as it might seem, I was born in China wuthout having a drop of Chinese blood, where I later volunteered to serve in the French army but was not French, and ended up in the French Foreign Legion in Indochina (Vietnam) under rather strange circumstances. As a family man, I owned and managed restaurants in China, Brazil, and California - all of them Russian/Armenian and all of them called 'Kavkaz."
