A ferry between Druja (Belorus) and Piedruja (Latvia) connected two parts of one community. People went to and fro. Now there is a border between two independent states, but no border crossing is contemplated here, complete with customs inspection and passport control. What happens when the ferry no longer crosses the water? Nothing. Nobody here could imagine that.
