It is interesting to get acquainted with the impressions made on the son of Fadey by three weeks of communication with relatives who grew up in completely different, different from the «soviet» conditions. It is also interesting to compare these impressions with the Yerevan impressions of Greta and Rudolf.

Greta met her cousin’s son at the Zurich airport. To the town in which she lived and where she and her husband had a family factory (later the husband handed over the reins of government to his son), they traveled by train. All the way Greta asked about the situation in Armenia; he and his brother could not forget the rally passions that seized Yerevan, and warmly recalled their stay there. She tried to find out what the contents of the large boxes that the guests took out of the cabin as hand luggage. Her curiosity was satisfied at the evening dinner, when Rudolph arrived to collect the guests. It turned out that the brother and sister had previously agreed that the guests would spend the first half of their stay in Switzerland with Rudolf in Bern, and the second half with Greta.

After dinner, the hospitable hosts were presented with: a souvenir Russian samovar with a three-liter porcelain teapot, also painted with Russian ornaments, and a painting by a famous Armenian artist. The guest presented them with certificates of honor intended for the participants of the action to assist the victims of the Spitak earthquake. And the idea to award Greta and Rudolph with certificates of honor did not occur to the guest by chance — he was afraid of troubles that could happen at customs at Sheremetyevo Airport.
