Day by Day: $44 for a single drink in a Baku restaurant…

Yesterday I was told this “unbelievable” story, about some foreigner in Baku, who decided to go to a restaurant and have something to eat. So, he goes there, and orders himself a drink. Turns out, the restaurant does not have this particular drink, and the client is, of course, upset.

Thanks to it, I let myself into a very sweet, simple social networking website, that specializes in foreigners and expats living in other countries. There, of course, was Azerbaijan as well. So, I registered. The first one I got into contact with was Sheila Burch, a teacher, working in International School of Azerbaijan. She informed me of a possible meeting of the foreigners in Baku, and a couple of months later I got the invite… Read the rest of this entry »
