Run Afoul of the Weather in Lənkəran

with one comment

After giving it a second go, Ryan has finally made it to Azerbaijan. Last time, it went down that the Azerbaijani government changed the visa rules without telling anyone and Ryan had to turn around mid-flight and head to Beijing instead of Baku. This time, he got through and we spent our first night in Baku, getting ready to take on a quick tour of Lankaran. But who knew the weather wouldn’t cooperate? Last year, there was nearly no snow at all in Lankaran. This year, it might be a little different. Today we woke up to whipping wind and sheets of rain. Mid-morning, it alternated between snow and rain, and then just snow. And more snow. At least a few inches of snow. After a tame winter in 2009-2010, and snowless 2010-2011, an early November snowstorm was not expected. Global climate change? Ask Həzi Aslanov:

  1. Hi Aaron, I wasn’t sure my flight to Lefkosia would take off on Monday, it was really bad in Baku, the airport was freezing cold. Met a friend of Steve’s in the departure lounge so that was nice. here the weather is gorgeous and I am off to Limassol today. The family have been wonderful and I am sleeping better.
    Take Care, safe journey.
