The Flying Carpets Are Soaring

with one comment

I know.  You we’re expecting to read about carpets flying, which has been known to happen here as recently as 1992.  But instead, I’m going to gently urge you over to Arzu’s Flying Carpets blog for some great posts she’s had recently.  Part of the reason I like pointing to her is that she can say things on her blog that I can’t really say here.  Despite my disclaimer up there on the right, being a Peace Corps Volunteer, working at the invitation of Azerbaijan’s government, and working in a country that is particularly sensitive to discussion of its shortcomings and conflicts means that accurate commentary sometimes has to come from other sources.

So, for those of you who haven’t been clicking over, it’s worth reading some of her most recent posts.  She highlights here progress on Eynulla Fatullayev’s case by the European Court of Human Rights.  We’ll see what Azerbaijan does in response.  And here is an excellent example of the kind of environment we work in, specifically regarding discussion of conflicts in Azerbaijan, and also illustrating the treatment of women here.
