Elsewhere is just barbed wire without a fence, AFAIK.



After 3.5 years you can again take a cable car from Slovenia (Bovec) to Italy (Sella Nevea):

I know an officer who was in passport control but in a little airport with mainly holiday low-cost flights. He said he just checked passports and never had problems there. It wasn't the typical airport to have problems in customs. He speaks a poor English and said...enough to ask passport, stamp (if required, not mandatory) and say good by.

In other main airports there are officers who speak several languages, but only in main one and not for passport control but for special checks or issues.

In other customs

- Morocco. 100% sure, no one will speak Arabic. Maybe some words of French but surely nothing of Arabic
Come on! I'm sure that they do speak dialectal arabic or even berberian at least in Mellila and Ceuta.

Just realised now - I took a picture of the fence in Metlika, but I thought it was an old fence, not a new one. Photos will come when I get back (and if my baby behaves, I'll get photos of the old crossing in Macelj too).

Some scenes of the Italy-Yugoslavia border in the 70s/80s (last part of the video has more recent scenes)

Interesting from the Kyrgyz Kazakh border, the A365 crosses the river Tsju for a kilometer, appears this is into Kazakhstan, there is a border marker the opposite side of the road - so the gas station is maybe some Martelange situation?

Also, there is a barb wire fence is kind of strange for two friendly countries...

I knew this was in Norwegian. It's called Chu in English.

Don't trust borders in Google maps, they're often placed wrong.

I consider Openstreetmap to be much more exact - and according to this site, both the motorway and the petrol station are on Kyrgyz soil:

Perhaps the river is the border.

PS: notice resort "Hawaii" to the southeast

no, this really is as border line as shown on google maps. look at this sign, it says "end of the transit zone". also, in other direction just after the bridge you will find the same. (weird is that there ie no sign for "beginning of the transit zone")

Like between Slovenia and Croatia today, or what used to exist on the PL-D border until 2007?

East Germany / DDR

Here is an example of some complicated border crossing with DDR (East Germany) with separate lanes for transit and non-transit traffic.

who in their right mind would want to visit DDR?
But mostly because of DDR-BRD agreements for simplified (but not simple!) BRD - Westberlin traffic...
