described through the gaze of the men who receive and make sense of them. These flows are concretely visible in the gradual construction, rebuilding or refurbishing of village houses, and through receipt of goods such as food, drink and clothes that are regularly sent from Greece.

what an amazing woman and politician she was. However, more 72 Migrating borders and moving times important than Dmitriy’s political views was the reaction of my host Rodika when I returned home after the meeting with Dmitriy. ‘What did he have to say? Did he talk to you about politics? It’s all right for him to occupy himself with politics. He was a policeman, you know? So he has a big pension. He doesn’t have to fight for money.’ What is interesting here is that those involved in politics are removed from the shame of the everyday border crossing experiences of

Cyclical family time-space was also maintained by the plans of many migrants to return ‘home’ someday, to the place they had left, the place to which they belonged and for which they longed (von Aarburg and Gretler 2008).

standing in one of the small stores and everything has collapsed in front of her. She did not get hurt, her store is fine, but it has all come down in front of the door. There is a small gap, though, at the top of the rubble and the rescue workers are approaching her and now she has to climb out and get out. The rescuers are saying, ‘Come on now, we’ll give you a hand and pull you out’.

Meanwhile, the colours of the word ‘money’ were green and white horizontal stripes. Throughout the display the Legia Warsaw fans chanted loudly while rhythmically clapping. After their rendition, they applauded themselves before many members of the stand held aloft red flares to provide a powerful visual display. Once the smoke subsided the match began, while the fans continued
