These picture shows the differences between living in Ecuador with the whole family together and living in the United State separating from the family. When we migrated to the U.S many of us are separated from our families, culture, and costume standards. Migration to NYC is living life at fast paste and many of just wake up, work, go to school and go to sleep. Our time is cut in half that we don't notice that we spend less time as family, in Ecuador it seems as time gets multiplied that you have time to eat with your whole family and still spend it with your friends to end the night.
