6 Travel Notes, Azerbaijan

Travel Notes, Azerbaijan

Posted on February 20, 2012 by


We are in Baku, the city of contrasts. The city today is a huge construction site where they build skyscrapers and  interchanges, as well as reconstruct old Soviet five-storeyed buildings. Baku has combined nice architecture and good food.

In some areas, Baku may resemble you Dubai, while it is mostly a typical Soviet-style city.

Some say they plan to demolish all old low-rise buildings located in downtown Baku to replace them with modern constructions.

    Another “funda-mental” backwater where without scientific socialism the men are trapped in a reptilian mindset. Oil buys pretty buildings but doesn’t buy intelligence.

    An interesting city with a dramatic skyline.

    What a friendly city, especially the faces of men are so “bright” and full of love to the humankind.

    What do you think ?? Would you live there ?? Would you visit them as a tourist ? Perhaps with your very cute young daughter… blond, blue eyes of course !

    All that money and none for the poor and disfranchised military veterans, a sham, really.
