... us a few hints with regards the cops in Azerbaijan, namely...don’t pay them any bribes ! There was a very interesting old fella in the queue also, who was telling us all about his time in the Afghan war and how he fought for the Russians...he even had some papers on him commending him for his outstanding achievements on the battlefield, he really was a happy go lucky chap.

... in the middle of the night.
At 2 a.m. we woke to noises of a city and distant lights. Assuming it would take more time till arrival, we fell asleep again. At five we woke to eerie silence. The engine was shut down and we could see no land through the morning mist. What was going on? Many questions sprang into our mind. We wandered in a ghostly ship searching for reassurance, that we were not the only passengers on board. No noises, no people! Our ...
