Baku

The train station in Sheki had only a hour before the night train to Baku was leaving a little stall selling some softdrinks and some chips. The person selling the tickets in the basar did open the ticket counter about 3 hours before the train was leaving. The conductor wanted to see the passport again and did give me then plastic sealed bed linen. The Platzkarty / colchester carriage was full, but the trip was quite comfortable. 

Also the Cheeky Carabao Hostel was a nice surprise.

Thanks to Horscheck's tip I had a nice dinner at the Restaurant Firoze in the T. Aliyerbeyov Street next to the Fountain Square, reasonable price for food, but expensive wine (but not much more than in the wine shops in Baku).

The Palace of the Shirvan Shahs is definitely worth seeing, 10 Manat entrance fee. The Petroglyphs of Gobustan might be but we left to late and went first to the mud volcano which where all right but Petroglyphs closed already at 5 pm. Take bus 125 to the last stop north and then bus 195. 

Then by train to the Iranian border at Astara and on by bus.

Excellent place to stay
The Cheeky Carabao Hostel is one of the best hostels I have ever been. Good location 2 blocks from the Fountain Square, one of the main meeting places… read entire review
