Welcome to Baku

After first arriving in Georgia three years ago, I've finally reached my fifth of the Caucasus countries. Just yesterday I entered the country on a 12 hour night train from Tbilisi in a compartment shared with a friendly, snoring elderly Georgian couple. Upon arrival, I was greeted by my friends Zinyat and Nadir and shown around the city like royalty. I would like to write more, but for now I'm still a bit tired, so I'll take the easy way out and just put up some pictures. Now please enjoy these photos of my wanderings through the clean, quiet, windy, beautiful streets of Baku and the views looking out over the Caspian Sea.
