Finding blogs about Azerbaijan has been tough. Aside from Peace Corps blogs, which tend to read more like diaries than anything connected to the rest of the web, there aren’t a lot of people blogging about the Land of Fire in English. I’ve managed to find a couple of them, though, and I’d like to share some links.
Scary Azeri is an interesting blog written by an Azeri woman who now lives in England. Reading about some of the culture shock she’s gone through is very familiar to me because it’s almost the exact opposite of what I’ve gone through over the past year. I first came across her blog because of our mutal connection with an old friend, which she wrote about in this post.
Flying Carpets and Broken Pipelines takes he cake for longest URL, but it’s an interesting read on current affairs with a local perspective. The blogs author has gone international, claiming to write from “Baku-Istanbul-London, Azerbaijan.”
In Mutatione Fortitudo is another blog that I just found, written by a Bakuvian.
Thoughts on the Road makes the simple claim to be “observations of an American journalist in Azerbaijan, Russia, and the USA.”
