Looking towards Albania from the Mount Pantokrator Monastery on Corfu's highest peak. The light was very soft and the sun watery but a warm glow spread across the hills, more and more intensely as the sun set. The whole time I was there, I couldn't get over how close Albania seemed, here in the UK there is - the UK! But in Corfu I was fascinated by 'notions' of borders, that by sailing a yacht in the sunshine across a short stretch of water from where tourists are swimming that I end up in another country for which I would need to let them know I'd 'arrived'- quite bizarre! I guess it comes from living on a very big island where we can't see much other land anywhere!
