The sea is behind but the new home is still far away. After having passed through the most dangerous part of the journey, the refugees still have thousands of miles to cross to reach their final destination.
The journey is not an easy one and buses follow trains, long walks with barely any opportunity to properly rest. Although it can be said that things improved since the beginning of the mass exile where robberies, attacks and accidents with trains were frequent, the situation is always changing.
I want to emphasize that as politics change, so do the situations for the refugees. At the time that these pictures were taken (October 2015), the camp border from Greece to Macedonia (FYROM) was open to all refugees regardless of their nationalities. On November 18th, it all changed when European Union ordered Macedonia (FYROM) to close its border to refugees except Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans as they were the only ones considered war refugees. As of today (30-12-2015), the border is still closed to all these other nationalities.
