Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Azerbaijan, Food, Governance

As the birthday of the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, approaches, the Önər Blog [AZ] reminds readers of how residents in the country's second largest city of Ganja marked it last year. The blog sarcastically says that while the city is indeed famous for its giant pastries, baking a 48-metre long cake to celebrate the president's 48th birthday was perhaps a little too sycophantic when there are still significant problems such as a lack of constant drinking water [1].
