From here to Baku?
It’s been a whirlwind kind of day. Overcast, cold and windy here in Belarus with this news coming this afternoon.
Looks like it’s official now! We’ll be heading for a new destination in the very near future, possibly Baku, Azerbaijan.
Not really crazy about that, but hey, at least I’ll be able to speak Russian and continue building on the language that I’ve already started. That’s a bonus – I won’t have to stress out about asking for a bag at the market or trying to figure out what is sour cream and what is milk and trying to read labels because I can already do all that stuff! I’ve done a little reading already and it looks like there will be a better variety of fresh fruits and vegetables available there and it’s right on the Caspian sea which likely means FISH! Another bonus is a house over an apartment which means hopefully a yard for the little man! I’m keeping my fingers crossed…of course nothing is for certain until I’m sleeping in a bed in Baku!
I wonder how long it will take for me to get my stuff?
