Joo! I’ve been cycling for years, I grew up on a bicycle. Nowadays I collect corrugated iron and metal, because there is a guy who buys all this stuff here. I load it on the back, just for a little something extra to buy electricity and tobacco. I went from my house to the dump, loaded up and came here to unload all the metal scrap I found. That’s how we survive. I made this little trailer myself to help me carry things. On the side here I’ve tied my “gun”. It’s my stick for hitting people if they try and block me. I don’t make trouble but you never know. At least I’ve never had to use it!’
