Sheki – last stop before Georgia!

Sheki – last stop before Georgia!

After two days in Lahic we arrived at our next destination, Sheki – or Seki, Sheke, Shakki, Shaka, Shekin, Shakne, Shakkan. Well, all is correct, for historical reasons, would take too long to explain. With its 64,000 some inhabitants Sheki counts as a city. But it feels more like a small town, which is nice for us. Sheki is especially known for its carawanserei. Originally there were seven of them around, two are still there. One has been made into…
