Election day not only provided an opportunity to witness the presidential election in progress, but to explore the narrow, circuitous alleys of old Baku. Erik and his translator Arzu went on foot to several polling stations during the day (more about this later). Arzu suggested that they take the more interesting route through the older part of the city, and it was the right choice. Without an experienced guide, it would be easy to get lost. Fortunately, Arzu knew how to navigate the way. The pictures tell the tale best, and several follow.
