Photographer's Note

This is the last village before the frontier with Belarussia. Technically speaking European Union ends here and one kilometer from here towards east the empire of the current version of dictatorship starts, the remainings of the previous communist era.
There are the villages not far from here, to the north, where the borderline divides the places into the Polish and Belarussian halves. Interesting to see your uncle being a citizen of a different country.

And my observation on the european borderlines: please have a look at the map of Europe. Polish eastern border is the only European one which is stright as all those post-empire era borderlines in Africa. Uncle Stalin and his collegues thought in a very geometrical way while setting the shape of this country.

PS. Leaving this evening for a week to see the most western part of EU :-))
