This is one of my favorite places in France.
A short fragment of the story

This is one of my favorite places in France. I often bring my dog here to play fetch in the water and enjoy the sound of the waves and birds. You might think that this place is not that special, at least it doesn’t look like it, but it is actually the boarder between France and Germany. In the lower part, it’s French territory and in the upper part, where the trees are, it’s German territory. If one pays close attention, one can see bike riders along the other side of the Rhin and even say hi to them. For me, this is Europe, a piece of land that is closer to one another, bringing even closer together its people.
