"Pedro Enrique Duarte, a 48-year-old accountant from Cuba, shaved inside the bathroom of a fire station in rural Costa Rica. American law has long given Cubans special status to live in the U.S. and apply for a green card — provided they make the treacherous, 5,000-mile journey. Pedro, however, got stuck when Nicaragua refused to let the migrants pass. Soon, though, he and nearly 11,000 other Cubans will be back on the trail, continuing their perilous travel through 8 countries. "I would tell anyone not to take this trip," he said. "You spend the whole time straddling between life and death." @meridithkohut photographed Pedro and other Cuban migrants in Costa Rica while on #nytassignment." By nytimes on Instagram.
