Azerbaijan: Welcome to Baku

Azerbaijan: Welcome to Baku

Welcome to Baku

Azerbaijan sounds like a far off and exotic land to me – and it is, since it’s about 6,000 miles away from my home in New York City. My flight takes me over the Atlantic Ocean, and across Europe before landing in Baku – the country’s capital.

Here’s what I know about Azerbaijan: The capital city of Baku is in eastern Azerbaijan, right on the Caspian SeaRussia sits to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia to the west, and Iran to the south.

Throughout history, many different groups have conquered Azerbaijan. Because of this the country is a blend of Asian, Arabic, Russian, European, and Turkish cultures.

I search the internet for everything I can find on Azerbaijan, but it is still a mystery. I can’t read any of the signs around me, but I’m ready to explore and investigate. But first, I better get a quick lesson in Azeri so that I can better communicate with the people I meet.
