... a chance of leaving a poo undisposed of. Shame the same can't be said for the Caspian Sea and its rainbow layering of oil which has definitely made us think twice about ordering seafood. Walking around town you could easily be in London with the seaside boulevard similar to that of South Bank and the pedestrianised shopping area a wonderful place to while away a few hours by one of the many fountains or in a teahouse. Shopping choices are endless from high end Dior, ...

One by one i said goodbye, they stood in a line, one kiss on the cheek is how men greet and goodbye in azeri.
