And as far as the musings of this one Gorsky-American girl, I will no longer have to explain where Azerbaijan is on the globe. I won’t even need to record a mini-lecture on my phone. The next time I hear an “Azerbaij—what?” I will simply take out a copy of this article, folded in my pocket or purse, and say, “Here, read this.” Phew. Problem solved.
