The liquid border

The Minho/Miño river defines about 80 km of the Northern Portuguese/Spanish border. When I was a kid, my parents would take me once a year on a shopping trip, across the river´s only international bridge. Customs control took several hours to clear at the time, as Portuguese authorities tried to limit imports from Spain. Nowadays circulation is completely free across the border. We tend to forget how amazing are the times we live in. Or how awkward life was a few decades ago.

Great shot! The river draws your eye right to the horizon.
