Kombornia used to be picture-perfect pastoral village, huge majestic linden trees surrounding an ancient wooden church, owls hooting at dusk..
The village is still there, stripped of trees and character, unique wood architecture replaced by drab cinder-block slums, a sad result of parochial vandalism and official indifference.
The squat brick structure of the new church towers over the main crossroads, visible from miles, surrounding trees no longer hiding its soap-warehouse silhouette.
