A cup of coffee for the heartIt is amazing how can a simple smell can transport you to a lot of memories. It's really dificult when you are a immigrant, because you have to start over, live and wait for your situation to be better. When I go to a coffee shop and just open the door, the smell catches me and sends me to my home is Venezuela and my mom making coffee for all my family. I can say that one of my favorite places to visit in NYC is a coffee shop, because just sitting there, I realize how difficult this new life is, with out family and friends. At the same time, when I'm there, I just close my eyes for a second and think that while this new life is so hard, there is always something good. For me, it is the fact that I can help my family and in the end this is the most important thing. That makes me happy, because they can live better and one day hopefully we can be together, drinking coffee and making new memories.
