The sisters even met with the country's prime minister, Hovik Abrahamyan, to pay their respects and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide. They also visited the famous Mother Armenia statue.

"Hovik Abrahamyan hailed the fact that members of the Kardashian family never forgot their roots and added that their visit would make [Armenia] better recognizable," reported the Public Radio of Armenia.

"The Mother Armenia statue symbolizes peace through strength," Khloe wrote on an Instagram shot of her, Kim, and a cousin. "It can remind viewers of some of the prominent female figures in Armenian history. Who took up arms to help their husbands in their clashes with Turkish troops and Kurdish irregulars. I am woman hear me roar! Blessed to be here!!!"

And it wouldn’t be a truly special occasion if Kim didn’t also debut a new hair style à la Paris Fashion Week. For this trip, it’s all about the long hair.
