Back in the apartment

Shockingly, the repair to the building's electric generator has been repaired in less than 24 hours. I think one of the reasons is that at the college we were supposed to host all the ministers (think presidential cabinet) including the minister of emergency services (think homeland security and FEMA)...but without electricity and water we had to cancel. So everyone is in agreement that's why things were fixed in record time for Baku.

In the meantime, I spend the night (courtesy of ADA) in a nearby "nice enough" hotel. I was on the 15h floor and thought I would share some window view photos. The photo of the hole in the ground is actually the footprint of a high rise being built where the original building collapsed. It is not unusual for building to fall down here since construction, building codes and materials, along with pay offs results in such tragedies.
