After a quite long journey our team has finally arrived in the capital of Azerbaijan. The first impressions were hot, sandy, busy, traditional and cosmopolitan. All over the city there is a lot of security and policemen which gives a quite safe feeling for the visitors. There are still many construction areas where people are not allowed to enter or even taking photos.
The way to the Crystal Hall is protected with several sewer ports, and it appears like Fort Nox. The entire area is newly made, but not ready though. Probably the organizers did not estimate that everything should have been ready on May 13th and not only for the final. But these are hopefully only teething troubles. On the other hand there many helpful staff and volunteers to make the day as easy for everyone. So there are exciting days to come, so just stay tuned!
