Arif is a 32 year old Azerbaijani-Swedish man living in Sweden for the past 12 years. Arif was told by his maternal uncle that the streets of the Sweden are paved with gold and the girls chase Foreign guys. It is heaven on earth and Azerbaijan is nothing but hell.
Arif’s uncle was living in the Sweden since Arif was only 7. He married twice there, once to a Polish woman and the other time to a Dutch woman. Both his wives left him, taking along the kids and their money. Arif’s uncle didn’t tell him or anybody in the family about that event and kept pretending like they all still live with him.
Arif was born in the city of Quba, and raised up in the largest city and capital Baku. When Arif moved to Baku, he was only 5, it was a whole new world for him. He never saw so many lights and a city so busy before. He missed the beauty of natural beauty of Quba so much there.
Arif dreamed all day of moving to the Sweden one day. He didn’t have an internet connection back then (he perhaps didn’t even know what internet is) so that he could have a view of what Sweden looks like in reality. He was called by his uncle who arranged for him a course in a graduation college there.
The motive of Arif’s going to Sweden wasn’t graduation, but he wanted to permanently settle there and he did. While still in college, he married a local Swedish girl whom he met at the bar where they both worked after finishing their college.
Arif still visits Azerbaijan once in 2 years and whenever he goes back to Azerbaijan, he doesn’t forget to hunt East Caucasian Turs there with his bow and best bow sight.
