Old city Baku part II

Azerbaijan has a rich cuisine. I noted that they even have similar dishes with Moldovan cuisine, but meat is what they truly like to eat and being in Azerbaijan you simply have to live with that. One interesting information is that Azerbaijan lies on a longitude which entails 9 climates from 11 continents. But, I am not going to tell you how wonderful in Baku, because for me it was difficult to deal with the locals’ floating timetable, unsteady plans and muddy promises. An objective thinking is telling me that between those shining new office buildings which house the growing infrastructure of a modernizing economy and the mosques and churches of a varied of denominations, the Azeri culture is still very traditional and strict. All these contrasts, however, are confusing to the newcomer.
