Executive Committee meeting of ASSITEJ, Baku, Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan is at a real intersection; bordered by the Caspian Sea, Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Iran, it is apparently one of the most tolerant and secular of Islamic states. Baku, it’s capital, is listed in the Lonely Planet guide as one of the top ten party cities in the world. “Since the 1990s, when it started taking off as a hub for Caspian Sea oil and gas, Baku has been transformed. It’s leM its former existence as communist backwater to become a buzzing hive of Western capitalism – all without forsaking the indigenous delights of its Turkic traditions.”
