Well that was different. In the evening, we finally arrived at a hill just south of Qobustan. This lunar landscape is the site of a series of mud volcanoes which splat away periodically. It was so dusty and windy up here. I spent a while walking around this desolate area until after sun set.

... lesson which brings things up to the present and finds us sat in Kafe Araz by Fountain Square enjoying a bite to eat and chilled Efes beer in 25 degrees.

We leaped from taxis gridlocked in rush hour traffic in and out of the metro into buses eventually running long stretches (Diana in jandels) only to have to wait 15 minutes since our visas were still not ready yet. Many would have given up at this point but knowing that it could be days till the next ferry we struggled on.
