Azerbaijan, the land of...

We all saw tonight (26th of May) that Azerbaijan is the land of many things- fire, energy, friendships, lights and much more. Baku looked modern, full of life, comfort and luxury. The footage from various regions showed mountains, rivers, museums, carpets... But what audience didn't get to see is the real state of the country that just spent 800million on a kitsch Eurovision contest while its regions remain without water, electricity, gas and other key infrastructural needs. 

A report below prepared by Al Jazeera (with accompanied article) looks in just one of these problems- water issues and provision across the country with a focus on just one of the many places where people live with limited access to water.
