In this narrative, a Colombian describes the process of leaving the countryside for the city of Cali and then leaving his country, Colombia, through the Amazon, Peru, Chile and Mexico. Migrating was not easy at all, since he had to hide his family, and sell some of his belongings in Peru to settle in Chile. He lived in Chile for almost seven years and was able to help his daughter finish university, but there is a lot of discrimination and racism there. He left Chile for Mexico with the hope of having a better life and crossing into the United States.
