The Pomegranate means a lot to the Azernbaijanis – so much so they even build their buildings to represent the magical fruit.

Standing on the hill surrounded by roses and looking out to the Caspian Sea I could see below the new Caspian Waterfront Mall with its spectacular entertainment center.

The old city of Baku was beautifully framed by pine trees and the boats in the bay seems to be winking hello, as light glinted off their windows and masts.
