Photo journal: Eritrean cactus-picker
Mountain road

In the latest in our series on people's daily lives, Marta Deriba, 15, from Eritrea (back, right) explains how she picks and sells cactus fruit.

I live with my family in the village of Arbe Rebo on the steep mountain road that goes from the capital, Asmara, down to the sea.

My mother's name is Letegebrial, and I have five brothers and sisters - Selam, Tesfankiel, Haftamu, Merhawi, and Hewan, who is holding Sirak the cat in this picture.
