Past the Border

Once we pass the border crossing we walk the bike path that was once the train line between Nova Gorica and Sempter. The Kostanjevica Monestary guards the area and the new homes that have been built here. The single house sits right on the border and the fence jogs around it. It sits in Slovenia while the neighbors live in Italy. The only way they can drive to their house is carefully through the pedestrian tunnel. The tunnel is burrows under the olive orchard of the monestary and has a great echo in the middle.
