... glass, mirrors, and even moving walkways!

Perhaps Baku was the worst place to finish off the trip, as I decided to treat myself and go all out for the last few days of the trip, forgoing budget accommodations for something far more luxurious and comfortable. But the problem is that there are no real budget options here anyway, and staying at even a half-decent place in Baku that isn't infested with roaches is ...
