Hello From Baku

So we've arrived, and everyone even made here in one piece with a full flight's worth of sleep (except for Brandon).  The best part of the trip, however, was when Brandon's sponsor announced that instead of going to our temporary apartment we would be going straight to our permanent house.  

Everyone here has been wonderfully kind and helpful, and we've settled in nicely which has been helped by the five days Brandon has been off work.  We're at friends this evening for dinner, so I'm using their internet for now to check news and bank account balances.

Brandon has his first day of work tomorrow, so we're hoping to have internet by the end of the week.  Stay tuned for updates!

Yea! That is so wonderful!

I'm glad that you made it. That is so great that you can move right into you permanent house too. Good luck settling in. Internet in one week, that's pretty good, it took us about 1 1/2 months here!

Very nice to hear from you. Thanks for taking the time to post. And congratulations on no temporary housing!!! Now you can settle in for awhile.

Make sure and give a roasted badger to whoever made the effort to get you the permanent housing. Isn't that what you give someone in Azerbaijan who's done you a favor? My bad - that's what they gift in the Outer Hebrides.
