This past week with Sian has been great fun for both of us as we've been spoilt rotten by Azeri hospitality. Unfortunately Sian feels she is unable to cope with backpacking for 2 months due to various unresolved problems. So it is with great sadness that we've had to part company prematurely again. I sincerely hope that things get better for her soon so that we'll be able to travel together again.

But, as one avenue is blocked another is cleared. So, although Sian is gone, yesterday another traveller I've met during this trip (in Hotan, western China) just came to town and is wanting to see the Caucasus. So Tawnya and I will be checking out this far-flung, ex-Soviet corner of Europe. Plus she has a tent which will hopefully make accommodation cheaper!
