Known for their history of exquisitely hand woven carpets, you can still witness a few traditional weavers at work in a beautiful corner overlooking the city center of Baku, with the flame towers in the background. This ancient city is just so full of charm. - The Carpet Museum, Baku, Azerbaijan. ----/------//-------/--------/-----///----/---//-----/---/-

Some random shots from the walk around this conserved heritage site in the inner core of the old city. . .Baku is one of those cities where you can touch and walk past walls built in the ancient periods right through to the 21st century within an afternoon. .

Dating back to 10,000 BC, records show inhabitants from the Upper Paleolithic to the Middle Ages. Archaeologists have discovered more than 6000 rock drawings, on these Stone Age dwelling sites.
Ranging from people praying and dancing to the documentation of about 22 species of animals, the images are extremely well done.
It was surreal letting my hands run on these petroglyphs and engravings. . .

Taking a breather on the hanging rock outcrop at Gobustan. If all my previous posts on Baku haven't convinced you all to add it up on your list of places to see, here's one more compelling reason to do so: They have the prettiest guides on the planet :). Smart and witty, my guide taking me through the Petroglyphs (ancient rock art) of Gobustan, was up for a challenge no matter what questions or pun I threw her way :). - gobustan, Baku Outskirts, Azerbaijan. ---/------///-----/------//------/-----/----/-----/---/--

"Yanar Dag" is a natural gas fire which blazes continuously on a hillside on the Absheron Peninsula on the Caspian Sea near Baku. So I was trying to get a picture beside the blazing fire and the heat catches me by surprise and you catch me trying to run away from it towards the end 😂😂. - watch with volume of-course.

This is the essence of the signature "Maasai Adamu", or the famous Maasai dance of jumps. For the Maasai, theirs is a celebration to mark the rite of passage, to welcome young men to the next stage of their lives. It is also said that the highest jumper gets to choose his bride from the assembled eligible women, who watch this with great intent ;) (understandably so). -Watch with the volume turned up. -The Maasai Mara, Kenya. ----/------/------/------/-----/----//---/----/----/----
