Borders and bridges

February 20, 2018

Khorog, Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region, Tajikistan

Here you are, standing on a bridge, with Afghanistan behind you and Tajikistan in front of you. Yet you’re in Badakhshan. Badakhshan is behind you and it is in front of you. Yet you’re in the Pamirs. The Pamirs are behind you and they’re in front of you. But the border is on the bridge you’re standing on.
