According the SOCAR, the Azeri national Oil Company..there are nearly 100 billion barrels of oil under the sea...and they are trying to get every drop. The US gvt helped build a 4B USD pipeline from Baku, through Georgia (now we know why the geopolitical importance of this former Soviet Republic too), through Turkey and on to the Mediterranean Sea. I walked down to the sea this week...think San Francisco fog with the wind of Dearborn Street in Chicago..it was so windy and there is constant dust blowing.
On the way to the sea...I passed a Nike Store, yes, they are here! Felt strange seeing LeBron and Dwayne Wade jersey's all over the store....that's it for today....check back in soon.
