SAN PEDRO TAPANATEPEC, Mexico
Israel and Estelle, both from Honduras, part of a caravan of thousands of migrants from Central America en route to the United States, kiss while bathing in Rio Novillero in San Pedro Tapanatepec, Mexico, October 27, 2018. Reuters photographer Adrees Latif: "I first noticed Israel and Estelle being affectionate while taking photos of migrants bathing and cleaning their cloths. I asked the couple if I could photograph them, they asked who I was working for and where these images would be published. As I did my best to explain in Spanish, they started kissing again. I took this image, asked their names, confirmed they were part of the caravan and left. As day turned into dusk and I started to make my way to the main road, I noticed they were still in the river, kissing." REUTERS/Adrees Latif SEARCH "IMMIGRATION POY" FOR THIS STORY.
