    It is estimated that around 18,000 asylum-seekers are now living on the Greek islands.

    Many are cramped into camps that are four times over their maximum capacity.

    There's no running water, and the best way to have a bath is to swim in the sea.

    Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from the island of Samos.
