Verso, maybe you have some stories to share about the internal republic borders of Yugoslavia suddenly becoming international borders? I've always wondered if those borders became fortified, or if controls were weak in the post-independence years.

After dissolution of Yugoslavia, only Slovenia fortified, as you say, border to Croatia and rest of ex-Yugoslavia. The rest of us, not so much. Much tighten border control was established when EU-border come to this area...

The bulgarian border line is at the stones on the shoreline (about 10 meters in front of the camera). The border fence is gone - picture taken from the romanian side

P.S. Most of the garbage is on the Romanian side

SLO-HR border was established pretty fast.
HR-SRB and HR-MNE borders were closed.
HR-BIH border was... well, it was not clever to roam around that area in that time.
i am not sure for the rest, SRB-MKD was probably established fast, similar like HR-SLO.

One would think Romanian would be an appropriate third language on the sign. Or second for that matter....

Rio Grande does have a hydroelectric plant as far as I know.

Yep, plus heavy irrigation from New Mexico into South Texas. The discharge is sometimes only 1 m³/s, that's basically a dried-out river.

Yeah... that word is more used for a wide river with barely water (but can have a lot of water for a while).

Little River (Río pequeño) is more related to a short river.

That word would be better... but you know that usually for geographic issues the exact word is not always used.

Furthermore I do not know if those inhabitants in Mexico use both words as synonims or so... the language has a wide use (and an often word here can be weird in the other hemisphere)
