Stayed in the Caspian whilst we were waiting for our central Asia visa's. The family who run's the hostel is not initially friendly but seem to warm to you as you sty there longer (part with more money). There is no place where you can sit and chill out as the courtyard is surrounded by other flats and the only place you can get wifi is hot and cramped. Saying that it is clean, well situated and there is nowhere equally priced that we could find in Baku. We were lucky and had the downstairs dorm to ourselves for most of the time so it seemed like pretty good value.

... heavily) I have to say that the modern field is a lot tidier and is pretty unrecognizable from the filming 15 years ago, but it was interesting nonetheless.

Lucky for us, there were another 6 rally cars on the ferry with us, 2 English cars, 1 Lithuanian, 2 Americanskis and 1 Spanish. We all got processed at the ...
... I was a bit emotionally shaken by the thought of it. The driver made no effort to apologize. Maybe you get extra points for hitting tourists here.
There was a bit of tension that we sensed between Nick who is very timely and Ramisa who is rather freer with our schedule. She kept telling us to take our time and kept asking if we wanted to do other things or see other things and go into shops. One shop said it was closed but she said she knew ...
... They said they didn’t want to fine me, they just wanted to look at the bike! When it was time to leave, they told me I couldn’t go unless I first revved up the engine and then sped away as quickly as possible, which is what I understood from their general chorus of “Zoom Zoom.... Go Go....." This was not quite the reception I was expecting from the police in Azerbaijan or any police for that matter!!!
Also before I arrived in Baku, I had to stop ...
A niggling concern remains the leaking petrol tank.A bit incongruous looking to find something out here to cure the leak when its one of the epicentres of the oil and petrochem industries.
Off tomorrow to receive our fate at the hands of the Customs services and hopefully thereafter sort out the ferry across the Caspian.I'm sure when we get back on the road we will get in the swing of things.
Haven't left here yet but have got great benefit from having a point ...
