Making friends in North America was new for me. During my first year, I spent hours and hours talking to my friends in Paraguay over the phone. Now, I slowly started cutting off my relationships with them. I told myself I would never be able to connect with this place if I don’t try. In New York City, we were able to connect so deeply with several people. They were street dancers who were Latino. For my friend, it was important to have conversations with them, speaking in both Spanish and English because she lives in North America and has a Latin American background. These guys were performing on the street. Later, we saw them counting their money in front of the library. We said, “Oh, we saw you dancing before.” That’s how we started talking. We walked around the city, they showed us many things. When we returned to NYC, we hung out with them again. So in this photo, we were crossing a tunnel with our new friends in a subway station. One of them started singing and encouraged us to sing and yell to create echoes. We were pushed to do something new. We still keep in touch with them now.
