3 tentativi in meno di 45 giorni

Tayssir tried two times to cross the Evros river the last 45 days. Tomorrow evening at 10 pm he will try again. Meeting point in Aksaray, a busy square in the Fatih neighborhood, one of the oldest areas of Istanbul. He will leave Costantinople inside an anonymous van that will bring him somewhere more West, in the marshlands close to the Greek border. From there he will walk in the dark in company of a friend and other persons he met just few hours before. They willl cross the jungle until the river bank. The last service of the smuggler, before disappearing, is to supply them with a little plastic dinghy. In any case Tayssir is a good swimmer and for sure this skill could turn out to be very useful. Tayssir’s equipment is nothing more than 2 bug sprays (he learned how to protect himself against the mosquitos that have been “eating” him during his former try), 100€ cash, a contact in Omonia square where to buy a false passport and a bill of 400€ for the facilitator. The money will be transferred by Western Union from his father living in Syria to his friend in Athens and finally to the smuggler in Istanbul.
