... that we’d gone over were monstrous and would not allow us to return. To top this off, there was a climb, a very steep climb, 2000 ft altitude soon turned into 4000ft and we were still going up and up.

At 6:30 pm, we met in the lobby to go to dinner.

... towns and was gladdened when the locals in response to my shouts of "Bakuuuu" kept waving their finger in the direction I was heading. However, it was unnerving driving on a road that was no more than a gravel path, when I thought it was meant to be a motorway and constantly worrying that I was going in the wrong direction.
