Venezuelans build new life in Spain, fret for homeland
The exodus of more than 3 million Venezuelans from an imploding economy, crime-ridden streets and constant political violence, is a well-known phenomenon, especially the flood of lower-income migrants around Latin America.

There has been less attention paid to middle-class professionals who, though enjoying more resources, also face agonizing dilemmas, often giving up years of training and work.

Arelis Morales, 30, and her husband Jose's aunt talk at the Monasterio de Trandeiras, Xinzo de Limia, Spain, March 3. Until January, Jose Martinez and his wife Arelis Morales were in the eye of Venezuela's political storm: he worked for an opposition leader, she advised human rights groups. "The main reason for leaving was that we want to have children," Martinez said, from the rural town of Xinzo de Limia in Spain's Galicia region where they left to live with relatives.

Mariana Elias, 27, shops for a red wine and other goods at the supermarket near her apartment in Barcelona, Spain, February 21. 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 Gosen
