A short story on border crossings
A short fragment of the story

My European memory is marked by borders and privileges. With 23 years, I crossed more borders than I can count, in and outside of Europe. By train, bus, car, plane and on foot. Most of the time, I am not even asked to provide an ID when crossing borders inside the Schengen area. But people around me often are.
