LOS ANGELES—The “Armenia” Ship will dock at San Pedro port on Monday from 4 to 5 p.m., reported Armenia’s Consulate General of Los Angeles, and urged the Armenian-American community to greet the ship and its sailors.

The ship sailed from Valencia, Spain on May 28. Traveling to Gibraltar, the ship crossed the Atlantic to Barbados and sailed through the Panama Canal. After the stop in San Pedro, the ship will continue to sail to New Zealand, Australia, over to the Indian Ocean from where it will travel to Indonesia, Singapore, India and then to the Persian Gulf. After traversing the Red and Mediterranean seas, it will make its final stop in Beirut.

The captain of the ship, Zory Balayan said that he and the crew are determined to cross the oceans that their ancestors have in order to create a bond between Armenia and Diaspora communities.

    Arik, one of the crew is my cousin. I wrote this poem for them
    Days and nights waiting with our bark ready
    Sitting around with friends hoping for favorable wind
    As we sat, the salty breeze touching our faces
    The night stars have given us the news to sail
    Fresh morning dew has covered our vessel
    We will start our voyage at the first ray of sun
    Friends and lovers standing on the edge of water to cheer us on.
    Ocean grand, ocean calm, welcomes us on to its bosom blue
    Farewell my dears, farewell familiar shores
    The Islands of colorful flowers and sky of sea birds awaits us now
    Will meet again when the keeper of the wind directs us to you
    Then we will see your faces
    As you hold your candles to show our way home
