Time With Char

Last week I was so fortunate to have a friend of mine from Raleigh, Char, stop by for a few days to visit me. And when I say a few days I literally mean 2 days. She was helping some friends move to Turkey and decided to stop by and see me. I am so glad she did and I had an absolutely amazing time with her. We spent the time in Baku doing some sight-seeing with my Embassy family (the family I stay with when I am in Baku who works at the US Embassy; I have adopted them, hence the possessive pronoun). It was hard to see her leave, but I loved every minute of her being here.

I have attached a few pictures from our time with descriptive captions.
Me and Char at Qobustan (a historic site with rock engravings dating back between 5,000 - 10,000 years)

Us in the House

Us at the "Burning Mountain" (a hillside where the ground is naturally on fire, constantly, from natural gas)

Me climbing through a rock at Qubostan that is believed if you go through it (like in the picture) and make a wish it will come true
