My name is Mohammed and I am 19 years old. I came from Istanbul to Greece seven months ago. In Alexandroupolis, police arrested me and they asked me 200 euros to let me free but I didn’t pay them so they sent me back to Turkey. Then I managed to arrive in Thessaloniki where I stayed for one month. A friend gave me money and I came to Athens for two months. Then I went to Crete where I was working for two months. I came back to Athens and I tried to fly to The Netherlands but police caught me at the airport. I am also interested in living in Germany or Sweden, or Greece. My brother lives in The Netherlands, that’s why I want to go there.
Now I am waiting here but I don’t know what I would like to do later. I want to go to school and learn Greek (so that I would be able to talk with the girls here).
