Kos – Optimism

Unexpectedly, it was dry this morning.

12 Burmese young men arrived safely in the early morning. They said they were so scared they were going to die, but they miraculously made it through the storm!

Amongst the refugees there is a mood I can only describe as a mix between relief and exuberance. It was real tough, wet, and cold, but now it is morning, the sun’s peaking through the clouds and drying their clothes, and they made it through yet another challenge on their long journey. The air’s filled with a positive vibe, gratitude, smiling faces, and even dancing (see video).

2 More days until the rain will be gone again and there are 2.500 ponchos (thank you thank you sponsors) on the way for the next rainy episode.
