The hotel we had booked for this looked good on the internet, with an outdoor pool. But we found that this had been closed, as the hotel was now housing a large number of Syrian refugee families, paid for by the EU. They are being fed and accommodated, but are all very much in "limbo", with no schooling for the children.
We decided to move to another hotel, but first George talked to some children. The little boy spoke good English and said that he and his family had been there 2 weeks. Let us hope and pray that the authorities (Greek, EU or UN) can find more lasting solutions to the plight of these families and others like them. There's a prayer for refugees on the Church of England website.
