Dividing Lines

"On a globe, countries are neatly defined, often in different colours, like pieces in a puzzle.  In reality,  the land mass is continuous: there are no borders in nature, just transitions.  It is people who have divided the world up into different colours, separated by lines on the map. To ‘divide’ land is abstract, it is an artificial construct and perhaps it is also absurd"  Erika Fatland   The Border – a journey around Russia. 'Dividing Lines' is now a book, available for purchase from this website.
