Oil Stamp - Years Ago

As a kid, I was fascinated by geography and history and especially by Middle Eastern and Islamic nations. I remember I first heard about Azerbaijan when I was about 10 years old. I bought some stamps with oil wells on them and found them so beautiful.

I've read whatever I can about the Azerbaijani people and I have several CDs of Azerbaijan music. I would love to go there someday.

I don't know why I'm fascinated about this country and its people, but I hope that soon they become prosperous and peaceful and shine among nations. You and I know about the great Azerbaijani people. Whenever I bring up the subject of Azerbaijan, everyone asks: "Where is that?" So I don't try to teach them any more. I just teach myself. I would love to buy stamps, coins, paper money and anything to do with that small, but destined-to-be-great nation.
