It's got the red and white side lights which are standard in Austrian tunnels. Are they on the Slovenian side as well? There aren't any at the German-Austrian border tunnel at Füssen/Reutte,
which means the full tunnel is in German hands even though half of it is in Austria.

Slovenia also uses that kind of LED lamps in tunnel (left white, right red). in HR we have both sides right, but in opposite direction left are right (for 2 way traffic)

The difference between Haiti and Dominican Republic is very easy...
Even if you didn't post which is each country or where the north is, the answer is: no trees = Haiti.

It was part of the politic of Haiti, which made all the country without trees (a long history to write)...

but, appart of weather, there are some details:

- it is the only border in all the Caribbean sea (the only island with two different countries). (630km x 230 km in the widest points including both countries)

- each country has a different language and also a different ethnic population (maybe for a foreing will not be easy to discover but Haitian people are "more black" than Dominican, even if they live in the same island).

- Budget and incomings are very different for each country, even if the resources are the same.

- Haiti is now one of the most poor countries in the world (I think the poorest in the Caribbean). And it is only remembered when a disaster.
Dominican Republic has too many tourist resorts.

And changing of continent:

Border between Zimbabwe and Botswana.

It is restricted at Botswana because animals diseases. That is the official reason to have a lot of controls... but in fact every one there know that they want to control who enter in the country

There's another Caribbean island with border: St. Martin. I like it because it's the border between Netherlands and France, without Belgium in the middle. And even crazier, the Netherlands is South of France there!

^ Yup. My job took me for six months on the other side of Danube, in the Romanian village of Coronini. From the beach chair of the guest house where I spent those pleasant days I could clearly see the beautiful fortress of Golubac. So, where the beach chairs are is Romania, on the other side of Danube is Serbia:

Wow!!!! It remembers me the film "The motorcycle Diaries" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mot..._Diaries_(film))

In the film, the actor crosses swimming the Amazonas river... but it is not a border there. Anyways, a fantastic pic.
