... and despite our best efforts we didn’t roll into the capital city of Azerbaijan until 3am. We set up camp near the port in order to get a bit of sleep before figuring out how to get to the Turkmenistan embassy and grab a cargo ship to Turkmenbashi.

At dawn, we packed up our kit and found the Turkmen embassy....then we waited and waited and waited before eventually getting our Turkmenistan visa processed at approx 2pm. Now it was time to find ourselves a boat across ...

I can't remember exactly the order of what we saw but I remember seeing the city walls, the Maiden Tower, some baths, and then seeing the Shah's palace, tombs of the Shah and his family.
