There was a student on the shuttle who started talking to me. Everyone seems fascinated with visitors here especially when the weather is not being well. He eventually gets off but I am joined by another native Turk who talks to me about American politics and how is pushing for the US to denounce what they deem as genocide by in the 1910s. (As a side note, I find it extremely ironic is decrying genocide as they have caused over one million war refugees in , they are occupying 15-20% of this country and they were also guilty of the mass slaughter of over 600 ethnic Azeris in Khogalin (spelling?) in two days of killing in 1993.
The bus ride to lasted close to three hours.
I walked around a little in the evening, but it was very cold here. I finally got a decent meal here. Granted some meat sandwiches (Donar) but I was extremely hungry. When walking back to the hotel some lady practically yelled “Tourisa!(or something like that.)” and I responded with my best Azerbaijani, “ ! Man tourisa man.” She ran away quickly.
I returned to my room, downloaded my photos and watched K-1 fighting that was dubbed in Turkish (the great thing about fighting is that no matter what language the people speak, you know what is happening �" someone kicked the crapped out of the other guy). Frankly, I am beat, but so far I have really loved this adventure.
