…the way it should be because of a day spent wandering and climbing with Sabastian.

there is much to climb/see/explore in Baku, provided you know the right people, having just met those people, there was much rejoicing, when my weekend of rather dull grant writing work turned into a day long wandering/climbing/adventure in which Sabastian the German and I took a lift to a high-rise under construction,  (with a kind gentleman who was worried about my shoes getting dirty) photographed a Russian family (the grandma was baking fresh bread!) and found ourselves in the studio of the most alternative/progressive painter in Azerbaijan (and one of the best artist I have meet in a long time) who spent an hour showing us various pieces of work.

return to ISM tomorrow having accomplished non of the work I intended to do…but having instead experienced the best day thus far in Baku. (which makes me hopeful for the spring:)
