For some reason, I always think of Al Bundy as a dictator when I see this guy...

Today Slovakia closed some minor border crossings with Ukraine, due to the pig flu epidemic. On the main border crossing there are doctors who will check randomly people coming from Ukraine. In any case the traffic was today quite low on the SK/UA borders.

I've heard Ukraine is closing its border. Is this true?

Great pics, btw!

Doesn't Trans-African Highway 1 cross that border? I thought it was close to being completed.

That highway is under constrution but until the reopening of the borders there will be no transmaghrebine!
There's no transafrican highway, many african countries doesn't have highways and aren't able to affrod that!

There are also closings on the UA/RO border. The bigger crossings are the only ones with proper medical staff and equipment, so only they will remain open.

Nope. Just searched from flickr

Only land borders in the area which I have crossed are all the borders of Lebanon and old border of Syria and Jordan.

And it's actually quite difficult to take any pictures on these borders. All the border guards are usually very angry about this

Who wants to transfer illegally money to Switzerland can always pass through Austria or France. Furthermore will bother those who have nothing to hide, when passing the border.

It's quite useless because there are also other border corssings with less control, like this one.

You're talking in plural. I thought there was just one (big) international border crossing between them (E85 between Suceava and Chernivtsi).

Since there are so many pictures now from the Middle East, hereby some own pictures of the UAE/Oman border from last Christmas (posted before, somewhere)





And 2 pictures of the not-guarded (and not-checked) but fenced crossing ont eh road E44 from Dubai to Hatta which runs though Omani territory for some kilometres.
