In the first 22 days of 2016, over 183 refugees have drowned between this beach and the stretch of Turkey's coast just miles away.   

For the moment, the only update I have time to give is this:

Due to the 90 days over the course of 180 days restriction within the Schengen Zone, I will need to return to the U.S. on February 4th, though I have no doubt of my eventual return to Lesvos.  I'm not comfortable posting my itinerary publicly, but if you have any questions, feel free to email me.  I'd be happy to answer them.

Furthermore, I've changed my recommendations for donations, and I'm currently working on compiling an updated list of what to donate and who to donate to.  I'll post the finalized list when time allows.  Thank you for your generosity, and thank you, as always, for your continued support.  It means everything to me.
