Camp Sounio, Greece
16 September 2016
Taking a break from warehouse work here at Camp Sounio today. Instead, I’ve been teaching conversational English. And hearing stories of the dreaded crossing from Turkey in little dinghies, filled to the brim and then some. About having to stand up in the boat during rogue waves, while being pregnant and seasick and pure luck keeping you from falling overboard.
Most seem to want to go to the Netherlands. As a final destination, I wonder? No. No, it isn’t.
Greece is like Syria, I hear. It’s beautiful, chaotic and things are usually broken. Like Syria. Only without war. Syria without war is the dream destination. Home!
