The volunteer who let us in- not a word was exchanged though due to the language problem

We are now in the small museum in the ancient Caucasian Albanian Church near the Khansarai in Sheki, Azerbaijan. This lady, who is pregnant, is the one who let us in. Not a word was exchanged due to the language barrier, though my guide did ask her a couple of questions in Azeri- the local language- to which she replied in Azeri briefly as well. For some reason, she kept staring all the time. The museum houses a haphazard collection of implements and pots and pans from ancient times. (Sheki, Azerbaijan, Sept. 2017)
