The weekend April 4-5

Every time I walk (still haven't road a bus or the metro yet) since most places within two miles I'm comfortable walking's pretty flat here..some hills, but on the other side of town. Anyway, every time I walk I see something I have seen before even if I'm walking on a street I've been on a dozen of times. On Sunday, I actually passed a Christian church, don't know the demonination but I knew immediately it was Christian...remember this country is nearly 95% Muslim..but they don't seem to practice. Walked inside and at first I didn't understand why the usher at the door escorted me to the very front of the pews...we're talking at least 40 rows filled with people...but there was a group of US missionaries and someone was translating the I got hear the service in Azeri, Russian and English....and since I was all the way in the front..I was stuck for three hours...oh, well.

Here's a pictures of barber...he's not smiling..Azeris never smile for photos...and too bad since he has the most gold teeth I've ever seen on a human being. He posed for the photo only since I promised to come back for my next cut soon.
