    ? It just means sexy, exept it was written by a russian (azeri) who can't spell, or wanted to be "cool" and spell it diffrent.


    I've seen people say "sexy" before in russian speach(typing).

    Maybe it was a word written in the language of Azerbaijon (Azeri, is it?) I dont know if it uses latin alphabet or not. But, ok, where was the sign? was it, pointing to anything or around anything?

    BTW. U went to Azerbaijon? Besides Kazakhstan(And Russia) That's my favorite country!


    I wish i could have gone.

    i have no idea. If it was written exactly like "Sexi" and in Latin alphabet, im 99.9% sure it's not a Russian word. So, i just don't know. Maybe when you go back you can ask them =)

    And, no, i unfortuneatly am not planning a visit there anytime soon. I too was supposed to go to Russia for Xmas, but it didn't work out. I applied for a visa like 2 days after the Beslan tragedy (Yea chechnya, im still pissed off you mother f***ckers) and they got all freaked out that i wasn't going to stay in a hotel and they couldn't kep track of me.


    Buuuut my friends just applied for a visa though this one website which they recomended to me, so i might plan a trip for april (spring break time). If all goes well, and i don't lose my job, then i should be able to go for about 2 weeks in april to moscow.

    Pravit, on this forum used to talk to a guy from azerbaijon, but i dont know if he still does.

    There have been 2 or 3 people from that country here before, but none of them seem to post much anymore.

    Yes, I am still around. Don't know what happened to Rasim(Garfunkel); I could ask him, though. What were you doing in Azerbaijan? What brought you to the country?

    Pravit is not from that country. Garfunkel hasn't come on for a LONG time, I think.
