In Greece

A day of orientations. And some small inkling of the size of the transitional population.

I will be at one of many camps in the area. The site has about 750 persons and is established on an old army post. That good side of that is that is there are not tents. The barracks are used as housing and supplimtned by "caravans" - a storing room container outfitted with water and plumbing. The other side is that any facilities or organizational changes must be cleared by the army who owns the land. That is one of the myriad of conflicting interest issues surrounding helping groups here.

I think that is probably true in the US and other places as well. Lots of people with good ideas and a few with different agendas....
