I was on the northern coast, near the town of Saka Sikamineas, for most of the day. Landings were concentrated in the morning. The people I met were primarily from Syria, though there were also Iraqis and Afghans. Most were young men, but there were also families, with women and very young children, including babies.
Those I spoke with said they had heard that Hungary closed its border, cutting off the route ahead, but were undeterred. Many had been anxious about the sea crossing, knowing it can be perilous. But they were fortunate today: The breezes were light and the Aegean was calm.
