Is Azerbaijan safe for westerners?

edited October 2010 in - General Asia
So how safe if Azerbaijan for western travellers? I would like to do this as part of a Paul Theroux overland train odyssey thing, but have my concerns about travelling solo in a place as remote and hard to spell as Azerbaijan. Any tips or advice on my safety concerns much appreciated. Thanks!

    I travel to this country solo for work. I have had no problems at all. The people are very friendly and the country is a hidden gem to visit.
