In 2010 I made a short border crossing (from Tbilisi via Rustavi to the border by rental car) from Georgia to Azerbaijan (trip 126). It took me an hour to get in and out. I got a visa before, so it was easy. I didn't have more time, because Klaudia, Hartmut and Brigitte Jokisch were waiting at the border.
In 2014 I was in February (cold) in Ganja, the second largest city of the country, at the university for agriculture, which want to make a curriculum for Organic. For LOGO e.V. I selected some students for internships in Germany. Agriculture is uninteresting for the people (youth) because of the oil and only for the poor and uneducated. Little land to gain. The former collective farms have been occupied by the former workers, who are subsisting there.
