Playing chess with friends across borders

I was recently standing on the US-Mexico border for an international art and music event. When I say that I was standing on the border, it’s exactly what I mean.

It was one event divided by large metal bars. Somehow, just standing there, watching people on both sides, hearing them talk to each other, the bars became uglier and uglier.
