The end of the road - Xinaliq, Azerbaijan. An amazing setting for a village.

While the plan had been to do some overnight walking in the nearby ranges, the paranoia of local officials prevented such activity. Something about being too close to the Russian border - the implication being that we may have been spies.

Makes me laugh, just thinking about it.
