Baku at Night

Here's a second set of pictures of my past week in Baku, Azerbaijan. This follows from yesterday's post Wandering Old Baku. The city has a great energy at night. Many families were out walking along the Boulevard park, there are a wide variety of cafes and restaurants, ice cream and gelato stands, along with cheesy amusement rides that would be at home at any American county fair. There's also a mix of Middle Eastern spices in the air, and a diverse soundtrack of music in the park - I heard everything from typical Euro dance music to American and Arab rap, to Russian patriotic music to Azeri, Persian, Latin and Bollywood dance music, and Korean Gangnam Style.
