Baku continues to astound, originally uploaded by Big Al!.

Baku is incredible, too hard to describe. A new bolt of astonishment round every corner. Loads of ex pats here, but i bet none of them realise how astounding this place is because they will have flown in and just arrived in a big city, not ridden 5096 miles to get here, passing through the rest of this country and everything leading up to it. I want to live in Baku, and i want a Lada with an air horn that sounds like a police siren. Seems to be de rigeur here. That or a big merc with blacked out windows and your hazard lights flashing, hand permanently on the horn button.
