Interview with Elina Danielian
Saturday, 28 July 2012

Dear Elina, it is great to see you once again in Armenia, in the comfort of Jermuk.  How do you feel the atmosphere of Jermuk affects the quality of your chess?

It is always a pleasure to play in one’s homeland, but at the same time a greater feeling of responsibility.  In Jermuk, while the nature is beautiful and the air is so crisp, it nevertheless takes me a few days to acclimate.  To play chess at an altitude of 2000 meters is not so easy.
