Vacation Part 1: Xaniliq...the most ancient site in Azerbaijan

Tucked high up in the mountains is Xaniliq, the most ancient site in Azerbaijan. It is located in the first northern finger near the small city of Quba. I had the pleasure of traveling there with my USA visitor Beth (an RPCV friend from my former work place), Chris, and Micah. Xaniliq actually has a language that is distinct from Azerbaijani, but we had no problems getting by speaking Azerbaijani.

As can be seen in this picture, Xaniliq is tucked way up in the Caucasus and surrounded by some sharp and beautiful peaks.
Beth and I on are way....
