15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Late Night Dancing

A refugee from Morocco on the Greek Island of Lesvos dances in front of a raging fire. The dancing ensued after a dinner of sheep, bread, vegetables, and Coca-Cola on a beach next to the Aegean Sea. This man, and the other two Moroccan refugees there, go to this spot to forget about the stress of the asylum process and to enjoy life for a moment.
