So I had dinner and slept. Well, slept fairly well. We landed Frankfurt a little late (see note above), so I just had time to walk through the many terminals of Frankfurt to my gate to Baku. The flight was delayed about 15 minutes, but nothing much. I had a whole row to myself and slept most of the flight. We had views of thunderstorms in the distance, and it was very turbulent upon landing.

Immigration was a breeze, and my bags (I had Kyla's, too) were among the first out. I found the driver, and we arrived at the hotel about 20 minutes later. The trip through town – past the glowing Olympic football arena, built for the EuroGames in 2012 and the glowing national gas company building – was fine and fun to look at the crazy architecture, for which Baku is well known.

Our room is an "apartment" … but the living room is full of mattresses. Very strange. I took Kyla her bag, asked for pillows and towels for our room, then waiting for Paul, who arrived at 2am. We slept.
