Compared to the heat of Dubai...winter is beginning to take hold here in Baku. Rainy, cold, this seems like what it will be for the next few months..some snow is predicted and likely for late December and January.
The streets are incredibly dirty...so all the dust and debris that I experienced all sprint and summer is now mud. Trash receptacles have mysteriously appeared on the block. Ah, the President of the country, Ibraim Aliyev is supposed to visit the Academy later this month. I gather when ever the President visits anywhere an amazing facelift happens just before, so I guess the receptacles are just the beginning.
