ROCKING DALMATIAMUBOINCAN, Armenia – A group of students who had been filming a group of friendly bears as they picked fruit at an Armenian town saw the conflict right in front of them.

Elizaveta Vorosteneva, 13, pointed out to her classmates and teacher in Tungirovnican near the Caspian Sea, “That’s a lot of people who are unloading fruits, like bananas, from the trucks right now and looking for them in the street.”

The schoolchildren surprised themselves by turning out to be videoing a display in a nearby neighborhood of lights synchronized to holiday music played on an old Volkswagen Peeler, a tape-recordable device on wheels with several hours of music that was intended to be stopped at various beats for the benefit of pedestrians walking by.

When a group of cows descended into the street, the children’s game apparently got out of hand.

Most of the song stopped, then continued with a sad track with the sound of trilling cowbells intermixed with loud sounds of an exploding battery attached to an inflatable reindeer.

Then the pole housing the reindeer got uprooted and the bear climbed on top of it. The animal’s head bobbed up and down while it took aim at the barbed wire that trailed along behind it.

And then, all of a sudden, one of the girls, Becky Kazin, went flying up into the air over the carcass.

My colleague Andrew Averill, who is in Armenia, writes, “Evacuations are underway as ash falls in places and planes have been grounded. That said, Armenia and the surrounding region appears to be mainly spared.”
