Meghan Cooper joined the MML team 5 months ago as an Island Institute Fellow. From 2013 to 2014, she spent nine months as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Baku, Azerbaijan. During that time, she learned about the history and culture of Azerbaijan and its people, traveling to sites including ancient Gobustan, the northern city of Sheki, and historic Gala.

Join us on a photo journey of this fascinating country, from the mountains of the Caucasus to the shores of the Caspian Sea, the mud volcanoes of Gobustan to the flames of Yanar Dag. Learn about ancient traditions and contemporary customs, see prehistoric petroglyphs and medieval and modern architecture, and experience an evening in the “Land of Fire.”
