Canada/USA border

Stanstead, Quebec, Canada, and Derby Line, Vermont

"I am Canadian and my friend is American. We had to phoon here. Cameras on both sides of
the border are constantly watching to make sure that no one crosses illegally without
reporting to the appropriate border crossing point.

"The Haskell Free Library and Opera House behind us was built astride the border as a
symbol of friendship between the two countries. It is a national historic site in both
countries. Interestingly, it is the only American library with no books; they are all on
the Canadian side of the building. And it is the only opera house with no stage. It, too,
is in Canada--but the seats are in the USA!" --Susan

Thanks to Susan and Jan for phooning and to Susan for the photo idea.
