Alexander Venegas (9) camino a casa de unos familiares quienes le ayudan a realizar sus tareas mientras su madre está en su trabajo en una hacienda. Todas las mañanas Alexander lleva consigo sus lápices, cuadernos, sus guías impresas y su tapabocas para moverse de su casa a la casa de sus parientes, que se encuentran a menos de un kilómetro de distancia. 26 de mayo de 2020. Cotogchoa-Ecuador. Andrés Yépez. La cotidianidad en las zonas rurales ha sido afectada de diferente manera que en las zonas urbanas. Su confinamiento no se limita a estar dentro de casa.
