Living in New York City for only a few months, Mariela Goicochea, formerly from Lima, Peru, is fascinated by the city living up to its title as “the city that never sleeps.” On her late night strolls through Queens Boulevard with her husband she notices that the trains, as well as the people, never stop moving. Even being thousands of miles away from home, she is happy that her local markets have all the spices she uses back home. So she can never really lose grasp on her native culture, no matter how far she is away from it.
