n. Minivan used as public transportation in Armenia. Made to seat about 12 passengers
can accommodate about 50 squished Hayastantsis. Quite smelly in the summer months. Very cheap by Western
standards, about 20 cents US. Recently a limitation was placed on marshutkas: no standing passengers
. This was placed due to a horrible crash
that killed several patrons.
US Embassy Employee: "Does that
marshutka go to Baghramyan St.?"
Passerby: "Where's your Land Rover today?"
