Day 4Up at 0600 for some meditation and reflection prior to heading off to the airport. €4 bus tix to airport and a short, 2 hour hop to Athens from Rome. I was surrounded by a team of Judo and Karate youth heading to a tournament. When we landed they broke out in very loud cheers! Scared the crap out of me! LOL
5 hour layover in Athens and now I’m sitting on the plane waiting for my flight to Lesvos.
Total spent on my 2 day Rome layover: €71! That’s food, ground transport and accommodation!
Arrived in Lesvos around 830 pm and picked up by Kelly.
The house we are staying in is just 2 km from the airport and right on the beach facing Turkey, which is 6 miles across the Aegean Sea.
As I was getting coffee Wednesday morning, a boat of refugees literally landed on the beach in front of us. Below is the remnants of the very skimpy inflatable boat that is loaded with 30-50 men, women and children.
The sea has been rough, keep the refugees in your heart, for their safety.
