Not just me - the Donkey will soon go back to regular updates. In the meantime I've set up shop in Baku as a reporter for Eurasianet.org. It's been very busy lately just getting the basic essentials (shelter, food, internet) so I decided to focus on the articles (here and here, two more to come) and take a break from this. But break is over! Next up, an entry about Georgia and then the Donkey will turn his attention to the regions of Azerbaijan.
