Alex had been having the time of his life in Turkey, where he’d moved to be where East meets West. He loved the day trips to Greece he needed to take due to his visa situation. Then his girlfriend Suat wrote a blog post criticizing the government’s policy towards the Kurds and recognizing the Armenian Genocide. This resulted in death threats from Turkish ultra-nationalists and an arrest warrant for “insulting Turkishness”. Thus Alex and Suat decided to leave Turkey. Now they are passing through a small town in Greece on their way to Athens to apply for asylum.
