Two years into his career after graduating from a top Hong Kong university, he feels he doesn't get what he deserves. He puts money aside, pays back his parents and pays his student loan. This doesn't leave him with enough money to get his own apartment. "I'm really considering emigrating. To Singapore or Thailand. The reason is that I'm disappointed about the future of Hong Kong.

"We can't survive on what they were sending anymore," said Barrios, a 51-year-old mother of eight crossing the border with a daughter and two grandkids, on their way to join her adult children in Lima. Barrios, a seamstress, described a family torn apart by dysfunction in Venezuela. Within 18 months of each other, she lost her 28-year-old son in one of Caracas' frequent armed robberies and her 83-year-old mother to cancer due shortages of medicine. "Emigrating isn't easy," Barrios said, crying. "I never wanted to leave. Not me. It's not easy to say goodbye. To leave the life you know."

The Wider Image: Venezuelans seek joy amid the chaos
A night at a bar is interrupted by a power outage, going to a baseball game is prohibitively expensive, and a trip to a nearby beach requires months of savings. But many Venezuelans have not given up on finding ways to smile. Despite an economic crisis that has led to shortages of food and medicine and has prompted more than three million to emigrate, Venezuelans are seeking ways to have fun and spend time with family in the hope of easing their discomfort. Still, the increased frequency of blackouts and a political showdown between the socialist government and the opposition has cast a cloud of uncertainty, leaving many Venezuelans bereft of simple pleasures. Venezuela fell to the 108th place in the 2019 World Happiness Report prepared by the United Nations, down from 102nd place in 2018. In the Western hemisphere, only Haiti was below the oil-rich nation, ranking 147th out of 156 countries studied by the U.N. REUTERS/Ivan Alvarado SEARCH "HAPPY ALVARADO" FOR THIS STORY.

Puerto Rican Nydia Irizarry, 45, shows photographs of her daughter Keyshla Betancourt, 22, who suffers from brain cancer, as she receives treatment for cancer at a hospital in Puerto Rico, in Orlando, Florida, U.S., December 6, 2017. Keyshla came from Puerto Rico in October on a humanitarian flight with her mother and 11-year-old brother Felix Rodriguez after Hurricane Maria hit the island in late September. Suffering with the blood cancer HodgkinÕs Lymphoma, Betancourt was deteriorating fast on an island where hospitals have been badly damaged, doctors and nurses have emigrated and electricity outages are still widespread. She is now on Florida's Medicaid plan, which pays for her daily radiation treatments. Living in a cramped Orlando hotel room, the family has no plans to return to the island. "We are staying for good," Betancourt said. "I cannot get the best medical help in Puerto Rico, and it has become even worse after Hurricane Maria."
