International diplomacy may be a balancing act, but the instalment of fluorescent pink seesaws on a section of the US Mexico border on Sunday showed it could be child's play. Children and adults from both sides of the divide played on the three seesaws, set up in Sunland Park in New Mexico. The seesaws were installed by Ronald Rael, a professor of architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, with the support of Colectivo Chopeke in Ciudad Juarez, to connect both sides "as a recognition of the actions that happen in one side and have a direct impact on the other," Ronald wrote on his Instagram page.
