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.

... away and could sometimes catch their little explosions (the mud lava was cold).

We gave up on visiting the petroglyphs as it was then closed for the day so we headed back into Baku city and went to a pub where you have your own keg at the table. We killed a few hours here until our overnight train, and savoured the last alcohol we would be having for almost three ...
... quite fun camping next to the quiet blooping and blupping of the mud volcanoes, and what a difference to the previous bushcamp in the lush national park, we were now in a moonscape.
It was a very early start, we were up at 4am and left at 4.45am (we run 15 minutes early at nearly all times), seeing an amazing sunrise on the way to Baku and to get our Turkmenistan visas.
The plan was... get visas and pack for 2-5 days on the boat ...
... 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 ...
... which was an interesting lesson in bartering. I had no local currency and after a lot of misunderstanding, I understood that they would find the manager as he was only one who could work the credit card machine. While I was waiting, I took a bottle of water and sprite from the refrigerator and started to drink it thinking I could add that to my fuel bill. I was a bit aghast to discover that the shop and the petrol station are separate and so now I was in a tricky situation of having ...
