We undertook this great trip in 2011, when we did not even think of starting blog:
Русская версия “Yes, it is,” an optimist will say. “Almost,” grumbles pessimist. In fact, both are right.
Русская версия We reached Sheki, the town in the north of Azerbaijan, by the night train from Baku (more about Baku and the train here), which was one hour late. It arrived at a small station more than ten kilometers from Shaki, and the only option to get to the town was a taxi. We shared a ride with a local.
First of all, we went to the bus station to buy tickets to Belokan – we were planning to reach Georgian Kakheti on the same day.

Русская версия Such signs are everywhere, especially in a new country. They astonish you or make you smile, even when you are tired or cold. Very often seeing such a sign one would think: why is it here, will anyone even consider doing what this sign prohibits. Many signs characterize local lifestyle, and are distinctive and unique, being used in one country only due to traditions or, for instance, climate. Here you will find our collection of such signs, we made photos of (not from the Internet). We will be glad to read your comments and ideas on them, as well as to see your pictures related.
