Side Tracked

Sorry guys, I got busy finishing up my thesis and preparing for my MASSIVE comprehensive examinations...

So...I forgot to post St. Valentine's Day pictures.

Azerbaijanis do not celebrate St. Valentine's Day, but they do have their own lover's day of sorts. Personally, I never thought of St. Valentine's Day as a lover's day, but as a day to show your family how much you love them. That is how I explained V-Day to kids here - in a family context. Unfortunately, that doesn't help the incessant giggles and dozen or so times I get asked, "Do you have a sweetheart?"

Oi da. (Azerbaijani for geez!).
