The people in Azerbaijan are very friendly and have a sense of humor that is compatible with mine!
Although our lifestyles have some differences (even those who live in the city), the good humor and smiles create an immediate bond.
The face you see along every road, in every museum, and in most stores is Haydar Aliyev. He was the president after the collapse of the USSR and is quite revered by most Azerbaijanis. His son Nadar is now president. Sometimes you see him in the photos, but he has some pretty big shoes to fill.
Especially fun were all the students from elementary school through university that wanted to talk to us and get their picture taken.
