Venezuelans cross into Colombia to buy basic goods such as food, medicine and toilet paper as their country's economy continues to crumble, leaving supplies scarce. People travel for hours or days carrying empty suitcases to fill with food to bring home to their families. One border official told me as many as 60,000 people cross through on a busy day, then told me not to ask again. The border is loose and chaotic enough, however, that keeping a precise count does not seem like a top concern. #venezuela  #colombia  #border  #journalism
