In pictures: Night commuters
Street life

Children can walk for 7km each night to reach town from the outlying villages.

Often these children sleep on business verandas, under trucks or in the central bus station so they can start off for school earlier than those staying in the centres.

Although it is safer in town than the villages, it is not without risks as children must always be on the alert for the police who can treat them roughly.
