The long road

The long road

Between 2014 and 2016, more than 100,000 Cubans entered the United States, not by sea, but on foot. In the first part of this series on the new era in Cuban emigration, we tell the story of three Cubans who made a clandestine voyage from Quito, Ecuador, to El Paso, Texas.
