Just as you enter Mathare (Nairobi) you run into this "recycle factory". These people spend their days picking up plastic bottles from the streets and then try to sell them by weight. They hang out around Mathare and try, like anyone else, to make a living out of whatever they can find.
This woman was living on the edge of a small road going down a valley. There were just 3 houses and a small village at the bottom of the mountain. Beautiful view but very hard living conditions.

Living conditions are extremely hard in the mountains in the North of Vietnam, especially during the very cold winters. These families do not have electricity or running water.

Inside Makadare, one of the largest markets/slums in Nairobi. People are working on the production of shoes from old tires and other rubber recycled objects. This is where products are made, where the work is done and, normally, people are not allowed to enter here. This place is like a huge labyrinth of tiny shops and small businesses crammed together.
