Winter 2000 (8.4)
in the World?
As for Americans,
well, I'm discovering that so many of them don't know where Azerbaijan
is. Last weekend I went to a nearby town, Alvarado (Texas), and
a woman there started asking me about my country. I told her
about Azerbaijan and explained how it is an independent country
Can you imagine what she asked at the end of our conversation?
She wanted to know: "Which part of Russia do you live in?"
I thought, "Oh my gosh. How can I explain to someone who
obviously doesn't know zilch about geography!"
