Always I have to run for my life
Boo Htoo and his family lived in Mae La refugee camp for more than ten years before he came to US in 2007. Htoo, now 29, recalls making the long trek with his parents to cross the border when he was about 5. "[It's] a very long way," he says. "We don't have a car, a plane. We don't have a bicycle to ride. My parents just take what they can carry, and then we started walking across the jungle, sleeping in the jungle."
