Introducing our new azeri family

14 Jul

Lamiah and Tahira, best hosts!

We have been very warmly welcomed by our hosts -now our friends- and spent more than a week living together. We got introduced to all parts of the families of Tahira and Lamiah : parents, grannies, uncles, cousins, relatives and friends. Each time, we shared several delicious dishes of azeri cuisine. Both Nico and myself have gained 3 kilos in five days ; kilos that we may soon lose again when crossing the desert on the other side of the Caspian sea.

Food, for 4 people 🙂

We instantly were part of the family : we’re sons of the mummies, brothers of the children, and cousins of the cousins. Beside spending a good time with food orgies and visits of Baku’s area, Tahira and Lamiah were a tremendous help for us dealing with our visas and boat tickets problems. They drived us everywhere, called everyone, and solved all the problems they could. We have been pretty lucky to end up here, and would probably have struggled way more to find our way out of Baku without them. The azeri hospitality has been very good to us! Sagol to all of you, and see you soon 🙂
