Haitian immigrants wait in a gymnasium in Epitaciolandia in Brazil's Amazonian state of Acre, on the border with Bolivia. Hundreds, if not thousands, of Haitians are showing up in Brazil - after an odyssey through Equador, Peru and Bolivia - with hopes of gaining residency as refugees in South America's largest nation. The gymnasium serves as a holding center and shelter until the legal situation of the immigrants is resolved.
