My 19 Day Iranian Azerbaijan circuit - From the Caspian rives to Tabriz and Takht-e-Soleiman - Day 10 (afternoon and evening) - On the way to Maku; Maku hotel accommodation and city strolling - The 18th of May 2017

The panoramic view on the way to Maku did once more impress me because it  was like one could easily be travelling through different countries within a short period of time. We were in fact fairly close to the Turkish border (22 kilometres) this possibly being one of the reasons regarding this change.

We were again lodged at another two star inn, which didn't differ much from the previous one in terms of quality, but which was as if embedded in the mountain right behind it. As Joelle, Didier and I made it into the town we realised that it was located in a mountain gorge.

We strolled around the main road, as well as the perpendicular commercial streets to get an idea on what sort of traditional local goods were available. We had a few encounters with local vendors who showed some sort of interest on us and who insisted on talking to us. By the time we got back to the hotel I felt I was ready to go to bed ... though I didn't  and later ended up spending some time at the hotel bedroom window admiring the night as it slowly fell down.
