Adaptation looks different depending on the person. Regardless, people gravitate toward others whom share the same culture. What does this say about the way people find comfort? How does this a effect the way in which they adapt and to the culture, language, and dietary barriers it brings? This thesis looks at Latin American immigrants that come to this country in search of a more prosperous future. Many immigrants find themselves looking for spaces that allow them to find the comforts of their countries. Businesses created by Latin Americans for Latin Americans like markets, bakeries, and pharmacies; as well as their practices and traditions, are essential to the way in which Latin Americans adapt to the United States. Having a space to make and listen to stories, while also feeling comfort, is essential to this project.
