We got into the Municipality camping grounds of Alexandroupouli at about 3.30pm, a six hour drive in total with 2 stops.
This camping ground is by the beach & the breeze is playing the dutiful lullaby.
Two of our vehicles got loaded with medical aid last night, including the one I'm driving. The load isn't proving to be any trouble at all Alhamdulillah.
And last night Azura & I once again slept in the front of our vehicles. Musa, you might want to have on hand something for stiff joints:)
We're spending the night here & will leave for Turkey tomorrow Insha Allah. There's free wifi, which is a fresh lease of life for many, not to mention shower facilities as its been close to 48 hours since our last shower.
In one of my chats with Nicci, one of the organisers, I mentioned my role in OrphanCARE, the setting up of the region's first baby hatch & that 4 of us on this convoy are directly associated with it; me, Adnan, Azura & Musa.
Then in Lyon, a woman travelled 9 hours by train from Barcelona to hand deliver 2 ventilators for babies & VPUK decided that it'd be appropriate that these be placed in our vehicles & be donated by OrphanCARE. So these ventilators are in my vehicle, carefully placed & Insha Allah will be handed over when we get to Gaza.
And VPUK is making a story out of these ventilators & OrphanCARE. As it is I've been interviewed by a Greek paper.
Amazing stuff we're seeing on this convoy. And Insha Allah will find the time to write about it.
