"The trouble is, we talk about the border ... as a place only, instead of an idea as well. But it is both where two countries meet as well as how two countries meet, and the handshake is rough."
Alberto Alvaro Rios, Capirotada, A Nogales Memoir
“The border means more than a customs house, a passport officer, a man with a gun. Over there everything is going to be different; life is never going to be quite the same again after your passport has been stamped and you find yourself speechless among the money changers.” Graham Greene, The Lawless Road
