The Wider Image: Venezuelans build new life in Spain, fret for homeland
Mariana Elias, 27, looks out the airport window before her flight to Spain at the Simon Bolivar International Airport, La Guaira, Venezuela, January 14, 2019. Before moving to Barcelona in January, Elias spent years in Caracas doing two degrees in chemical and production engineering. Her reason for moving to Barcelona was straightforward: "My job ambitions. As I really prepared myself academically, I wanted to have the opportunity in the long-term to progress and upgrade. I wasn't able to see that in Venezuela right now." REUTERS/Ana Maria Arevalo Gosene SEARCH "AREVALO SPAIN" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
