I hope you had a passport here, Erik, but we live in the EU, don't we? I mean, it means that country borders are no longer exist. Anywaym interesting shot. cheers, archrodney!

We needed our passports here, Archrodney. Remember that Switzerland is not part of the EU and has strict border control, which can be very uneasy sometimes. Leaving Switzerland normally is no problem, their glad you're out, but entering the country is another story...;-) The young Italian border control here also took his work very serious, or was just playing he was. We had to open the car, show our luggage and deliver all the weapons, money and drugs that we brought with us;-) Luckily we were not they only ones who were scrutinized and treated like smugglers...

All best, Erik
