Africa is known all over as the poorest continent in the world because most of its countries are still under developed. To be honest, in my own country Uganda you find some people sleeping in dilapidated structures, on streets, under sewage pipes etc. with nothing to eat and proper clothes to wear. However like many other Africans who are living in Africa, before I travelled I had a different picture of Europe and I never imagined at any one time that there where people living under very poor conditions comparable to those in Africa. It was a shock to me to find beggars on European streets and other people with no proper sleeping places, no food and good clothes.
Sometimes there are faster but criminal ways to make money, for instance selling drugs on the streets of Barcelona.
There are many African people who get involved in criminal activities like drugs. Some of them see this as their last option to survive, like the young man in this item. He sells drugs on the streets of Barcelona. But how does did he end up like this?
