Going back to certain places, they find it disappointing. “Now it is very difficult to enter the countries, many closed borders, many procedures,” protested Emil assuring that before, that did not happen. For her part, Liliana considered that in South America “there are a lot of people, tourists, buildings. There is a lot of garbage… people don’t care about the environment, and that hurts us ”.
However, there is something that does not change for them: people. Despite the many crises, wars and hardships, “the people are still just as friendly and happy as the first time we came.”
The journey continues.
