A unique form of water collecting is being used in Peru to help solve the lack of water to be found on the hills surrounding the capital, large fog catching nets are set up that are capable of gathering water from the air without the need for rain.
When people from rural Peru move to Lima, the capital, they're looking for a better life. But things can be tough. It's hard to find a job in the city.The jobs they can get—bus driver, street vendor, construction worker—don't pay well.
