... probably a result of the oil money that has flowed through Azeri banks since the 1800s. You get a much better sense of the degree of oil money coursing through Baku the closer and closer you get to the centre.
Baku's old town is pretty cool - there isn't much in the way of sights, but it's quite pretty and well-maintained. However, things get more interesting as you step out of the old town and into ...

Baku is an amazing city! You can see the oil money dripping off the expensive cars, the new and imaginative sky scrapers, and the well-watered Bulvar (boulevard). It's a pity that ...
