Haitian refugees have been arriving on the border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua by the thousands, after a trip that did not originate at home.

Two years ago, they left Haiti and went to Brazil in search of a better future, but the crisis in that country has them fleeing once again.

After trekking more than 5,000 kilometers on foot and across dangerous terrain, their journey comes to an abrupt halt.
