One has only to cross the border of the USA and Canada, as everything changes around. At first it is noticeable on the roads: it’s not that they are so obviously getting worse, but still not American. Here is the time to perk up, praising the Motherland, but this is not only our problem, it turns out!
And then you start to look around and completely forget about the roads, about fatigue and about the desire to take a nap under the rustle of wheels. Because, on the sides, absolutely incredible pictures of a luxurious Canadian fall open … Forests are colored, perhaps, with all shades of yellow, orange, burgundy, violet and even chocolate colors.

A lot of myself in the frame and very little of the world. About the “littered horizon” and say no. They all started like that, probably.
