Introducing Dougal 2

IMG_2698

We have our new car. Very excited to have this as it I have been a bit stuck in Stonepay this week. It will be great to get out and explore a bit more and get to the fruit and veg markets. Our driver, Turan,  seems really good, he is coming on Monday to pick me up. It is a bit odd having a driver again and I’m sure it will take some getting used to but the driving in Baku is absolutely terrifying that I am much happier leaving it to someone else. (I did drive in Korea which was bad enough but driving here takes it to a whole new level, though there are some who do brave driving themselves especially at the weekend when the traffic is less.)

You might be wondering why the car is called Dougal 2, well because we had a Mitsubishi Pajero (called a Shogun in the UK) the last time we were here, which was unsurprisingly called Dougal, named after the dog from the Magic Roundabout. I have just been doug1460looking up the wikipedia page, I never knew that the program was originally in French and the BBC brought the animation but without the scripts, so a new script was made just from the animation, which might explain why the stories were a bit odd at times.

Whilst on silly facts, the Pajero is named after the Pampus cat from South Argentina!

Some photos of the original Dougal, looking right at home off road around about Baku. Really looking forward to getting out and doing a bit more of this!

    We has a Pajero in Egypt. Was an awesome car. Great in the desert and swallowed anything we threw in the back. I miss that car.
