requiem -taxi driver 2

"you should come here again a bit later" said the taxi driver, when we were passing by the memorial cemetery park.

 

now i deeply rely upon his words for finding great places with the best atmosphere. indeed, coming back to the park after the dark, soon i found his word completely right. the cemetery park was built for relieving the spirit of victims who lost their lives amid the war with armenia soon after the independence.

 

inside the park were some fire places which keeps burning all the day. the view from the hill, either day and night, is perfectly beautiful. but now i understand why the driver wanted to bring me here such a late evening.

 

everything is calm and only the fire ever solemnly stands, leading the visitors into the mystic world. i became sure this memorial park and the sincere hospitality of the driver was steadily overcoming the sad history of the people, changing the park into the symbol of prosperity.

 

"by the way, tomorrow is your last day in baku. why don't you wake up early and drive around the city before you leave for the airport?" my dear taxi driver threw me a very attractive proposal.......
