Fun facts about the Serbia's border with Kosovo, which Serbia still considers a province of Serbia: (1) if you agree with the Serb position, then Serbia still has 8 borders, because it would then also border Albania; (2) you can drive from Serbia into Kosovo no problem, but you can't go the other way, because the Serbs don't recognise the exit stamp from "Republic of Kosovo" since they say there is no such thing! You solve that by driving briefly through a 3rd country, like Montenegro, but don't be surprised of the Serb border guards look for the Kosovo exit stamp and cross it out!

India was on here before. It's not because of Sri Lanka. I think it's because the disputed Kashmir region is no longer administered by India. That eliminates the border with Afghanistan.
