"Lesbos has returned to its sleepy self, but wherever I look on this lovely Greek island I see ghosts of the past," writes Will Vassilopoulos, a video journalist based in Athens.
"I drive along the coastal road on the island’s northern shore, toward the town of Molyvos. The beaches along the way are empty and they look pristine. But when I look out onto them, I see the thousands of frightened, shivering people stepping onto European soil for the first time after a perilous sea crossing, hopeful for a better future in a new land. I see the beaches strewn with life jackets and emergency blankets."
