Tea house in Ilisu village of Qakh...







As promised yesterday (please see the previous post) I am posting today pictures of the tea house / cafe / restaurant (call it the way you want since they are offering both tea and food) of Ilisu village of Qakh. We started with tea but then decided to have a meal as well. The waiter said that it looked like it would rain so we escaped to shelter (you can see the sheltered places on 1st and 3rd photos). Tea pot and glasses you see on the 2nd photo are very typical for Azerbaijan. Drinking tea non stop is also very normal for Azerbaijanis...I will go back to tea topic again at some point in future inshAllah...(means God allowing...this way we show that we know that notions like tomorrow do not really depend on us...but this is a completely different subject...) Unfortunately I dont have photos that would be without people...so thank you for bearing with me.
Have a good day :)

Always nice to stop off for a cup of tea and a slice of cake. Charming spot.

It is lovely to see the people in your photos, and the customs, and the scenery. Azerbaijan is truly beautiful with the mountains and the water and the trees.

That is a really lovely teapot
and I like the yellow flowers in the first picture.
Tea with lemon - always nicer than with milk.
