We stayed in the town of Molivos on the island of Lesvos. A beautiful little port town.
Life vests from the arriving refugees have been accumulating at this landfil.
The pile of vests is pretty tall, but it also extends down several feet as well.
Lots of vests
The UN wants to declare this place as a heritage site - the locals, however, disagree.
When we got to the landfill, there was a documentary team working on a movie about the refugees. They were waiting for the moon to come up and take some video by moonlight. (That is the moon peeking over the mountains).
This camp is used when a large number of refugees arrive at once. They are given food and water, clean clothes, and can spend the night here.
