What prompts citizens to leave their homeland forever and how does their life change because of it? I’d like to start my reflection at the first steps of the process – in the consulate, because as it happens, I was there this morning (don’t freak out though, I’m not moving).
“Why are you leaving Colombia?” Someone asked me thisat the airport of Bogotá just before taking the plane to the United States. It took me a few moments to come up with an honest answer that would sufficiently express the reasons why I was leaving my beloved country. I replied to the question after [...]
