Baku boulevard at night

It is so hot here (around 35degrees) that the boulevard is practically deserted during the day. That all changes at dusk when it becomes a place to socialise and hang out with family and friends, it really is a whole family outing with toddlers running around right though to aged grandparents being helped along.

There are lots of people scooting around in rollerblades and on bikes, but there is plenty of room so no collisions – at least none that I saw. There is a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere as everyone is there to relax and enjoy themselves.

Frustratingly, as soon as I got back to the hotel room a coordinated fountain, lights, music and pyrotechnic display was on which would have been great to watch, we could only catch glimpses from the room.
