Mi Viaje de allá para aquí

Chicken or Champion?
A mother summarizes her journey from Honduras.

Mi Viaje de allá para aquí

I am of Salvadorian nationality.

I am 24 years of age.

I have a sister who is 6 years of age.

I took the trip with my daughter.

We took the hardest route.

*

The trip started with 15 people.

We traveled in a small truck

And then a bus.

*

We had to cross a river

to enter Mexico.

There was fear in my heart.

I imagined the boat

turning over.

Then

Thanks to God

all went well.

We arrived in Mexico.

*

We stayed overnight

at a ranch.

It was filled with fleas.

We had two days

with no food.

My daughter asked me for food.

I had none to give her.

I cried so much.

But I kept my faith

in my God

and in the Virgin of Guadalupe.

*

The easiest part of the trip

was

finding

immigration.

*

I advise people to think

Long

and

Hard

BEFORE

making the journey

because

The trip

is

very

hard. . .
