Polycastro, day four, Sunday, 12th of August 2018

Day off

Today is our day off. In the morning I have a late and long breakfast at the hotel and watch TV. Big discussions about asylum for refugees take place in Germany. It seems that only these people that have a very good education would ever have any chance.

Some volunteers and I spend the afternoon at the skra waterfall in the mountains near the border to Makedonia.

You could swim in a small lake next to the waterfall. To take a bath in the 12 degrees cold water is great while it’s 32 degrees outside.

On our way back, we are stopped by the police. They ask for our documents and who the car is from. I ask myself: “Does our Italian driver look like a refugee with his black hair?”
