A state border is after all just a line in the dirt so why should it make such a big difference? The houses grow stilts. The roads get narrower. The way towns are laid out have a familiarity to me a country town Queenslander by birth and upbringing. I have never been to Cunnamulla but I feel strangely comfortable.
I find it a little disconcerting. I didn't expect this trip to be a homecoming.
