... away and could sometimes catch their little explosions (the mud lava was cold). All in all though it wasn't the most impressive thing, although it was fun, so I could see why we were the only tourists there. 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 ...
... Tower, a medieval tower which is linked to the legend of women throwing themselves off it... its real purpose might have been less prosaic, either a defensive or viewing or astronomy tower. The display inside as really good.
The fountain park had no fountains turned on...
Tomorrow we are going to attempt the walking tour again and try not to get too distracted by air conditioned coffee shops or malls.
Details on the boat to follow.
We spent a couple of days here in this ancient city and Bob and I managed to find 2 superb restaurants where we enjoyed some delicious local food. We managed to climb to the top of the famous Maiden Tower where we had a splendid view over the city of Baku. Later the same morning our tour leaders / drivers, Ricky and Em, announced that we were due to sail on our "ferry" later that day. So we all boarded our truck and ...

We passed some interesting towns with MacMansion-type villas and new detached houses that looked like suburbs. There were also sheep and cows crossing the road and grazing in the fields.

Large-scale farming ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCaspian Plaza Baku
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.
