Every now and then it’s nice to be lost in a big city. Tonight I found myself reflecting deeply about my life as I went for a walk along Baku’s waterfront, stopping every now and then at various park benches when I wanted to write down my thoughts. I am thinking more and more about my future as the end of the year approaches and I face a likely end to the personal savings that have supported my adventure thus far. A lot of disconnected thoughts about feeling lost and isolated came together into a sensible narrative that has allowed me to refocus my mind and be positive about the near future. The insights I gained make me feel as if hanging around in Baku longer than planned has been worth it. I didn’t get home until about 8.30pm. Having slept in, I’d spent the rest of the day transcribing diary entries from my notebook into my laptop and watching movies. I am still feeling a bit sick, though I think my stomach is starting to settle.
