We are in Baku.

On Monday we relocated to Baku. It still feels a bit unreal as this last year has been so confusing, first we were going to the UK, then Baku, then it was all off and we were staying in the UK, then possibly back on and now definetly back on and here we are!

The flight was pretty uneventful, though we were sitting at the gate for a long time as there were heavy thunderstorms in the area. But this was great at the captain invited any children on board to come up and have a look round the flight deck.

One very happy Gregor in the Captain's seat.

We are staying in the Marriott this time and liking it a lot, the staff are very child friendly with lots of smiles, we have 2 connecting rooms so loads of space and great views.image

We are right next door to our old apartment, which just adds to the slightly unreal feeling about being here again. This hotel looked a lot different last time we were here!

You can really see the sand on the windows in this picture, inevitable in a semi-desert.

Our old flat was on floor 13, so if you see where the white part of the building juts out and then go up a further 3 floors on the right hand side, that is our flat!

We spent yesterday just hanging round the hotel and lazing in the pool, where Gregor managed to gather a collection of swimming woggles and aqua-aerobic weights.  And today we are heading to Stonepay to check out our new house! I will remember to take my camera so I can post photos of where we will be living soon.

    Hi Esther, I bet Baku has changed a lot since you were living there before. I’ll be coming for a visit in September. Maybe we can meet for coffee. Enjoy your time in Baku!!!

    Crikey! When someone said you were moving, I thought they meant to the other side of Old Basing!
