Armenian Desert Safari 2008HyeLounge and Hayer Groups kicked of their new campaign together and organized Armenian Desert Safari which took place on 29th February 2008 in Al Aweer (Dubai).
 
Around 120 Armenians gathered in Dubai and Sharjah and made the trip to the pick up point in three coaches, followed by dune bashing tour through the desert, reaching the final destination around 5:30 pm. On arrival to the camp, guests were directed towards a specially designated section decorated with Armenian flags and presented with memorabilia hats designed and labeled with a truly patriotic logo ‘Proud 2 be Armenian’.
 
Whilst waiting for the delicious barbeque, the positive energy of attendees was very obvious as visitors participated in tattooing of traditional hanna designs, camel riding, quad biking, taking endless photos, singing Armenian songs and some even joined the exotic belly dancer in her performance. 

Whilst for some people this was the first time they attend a desert safari, to have it done in Armenian style made the occasion even more special. Throughout the day HyeLounge and Hayer received numerous messages of appreciation and encouragement to continue organizing similar events in the same spirit and dedication.
 
As the camp was filled with visitors of all nationalities, it was clear which group was having the most fun!

When everyone else left the site, Armenian spirit overwhelmed the whole camp and the party continued till 10pm. Here are the pictures from the event and we’ll let you be the judge (click on the below photo boxes). 
 
We would like to thank all of those who had participated in this exciting gathering. Your enthusiasm and energy made this event into a very special day and we certainly hope that your participation will continue in future Hyelounge and Hayer events.
 
If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see from Hye Lounge or wish to give some feedback on previous events, please don’t hesitate to send your comments to: hyelounge@hotmail.com.
