The Balkan migration route has seen hundreds of thousands of people flee their homeland in search of a better life in Western countries, in the most dramatic mass movement from the Middle East to Europe. Many points along the Balkan route have become places where migrants are forced to stay for days or even weeks before they can move on. During these forced stops, people begin to form instant communities, finding friends from the same country or people hoping to reach the same destination. In these new roadside villages, with their ever-changing populations, everyday life is suspended in an undefined place and time. The incredible diversity of people ranges from the old-fashioned rusticity of some humble Afghan migrants to the urbanity of other middle-class Syrian families. From the old Muslim believers to the modern young technology bloggers, all bound together by the democracy of the hard journey, all stuck in limbo, waiting for the future to come.
