“40 lies”. The honey lovers of Karinj village

According to the “40 lies” of grandpa Valod describing the villages of the Lori region (this is how the people of Karinj named them), Karinj villagers eat honey a lot. Grandpa Valod is no longer alive, but his “40 lies” have widely spread across Lori. Indeed, the son of grandpa Valod is the only one who knows all the 40 of them.

Who isn’t aware of the fact that Martiros Saryan visited Dsegh but painted the village of Karinj instead?

People cultivate the soil and grow livestock in the village that lies in stones and green.

In May, the village is almost emptied as those who grow livestock move to the mountains for three months.
