And it can build a surprisingly beautiful, cosmopolitan oasis-of-a-city called Baku, in the middle of a post-Soviet dystopian landscape.
We arrived in Azerbaijan a few days ago. I decidedly prefer land borders, you know. Airport borders are cruel and abrupt in the way they dump you suddenly into a new ...
