We received a photo from the Eritrean Embassy in Tokyo, celebrating the completion of the “Karuta 200” cards. Eritrea’s official character Berebere-kun (camel) is in the picture holding a picture card of the Eritrean railway.
Eritrea is located in the north-east of Africa and has a population of about 5 million. There are not only deserts, but also mountains over 3000 metres high. The view from the window of the steam locomotive running through the mountains is magnificent and popular with tourists and railway fans from all over the world.
