Josué Natanael Marroquin Orellana, 24, from Honduras and Elida Armi Quintanilla, 29, from El Salvador met on the caravan and struck up a romance in Huixtla. "I'm here because it is so difficult in my country," says Josué, "there is no work. No money." Elida chimes in, "It is the same in El Salvador. You work from 4am to 5pm for three dollars a day." Josué left his brother and mom behind in Honduras and Elida her two children. "I just want to work enough to support my children in El Salvador. I want to work for some time in the US and then I want to go home. I miss everything about my country, my family, my home," says Elida.
