Sleeping Chinese!

by

I stumbled upon this site which is basically exactly what the title says, a collection of photographs of sleeping chinese. Anyone who has been to China will have undoubtedly have come across tons and tons of sleeping Chinese. Every day there seems to be some sort of unspoken fiesta as they eat then take a kip. They can seemingly sleep through anything and ON anything. I have seen so many Chinese guys asleep at the most awkward of angles it’s just plain ridiculous.

We travelled quite extensively via sleeper trains and each and every time barely got any sleep. Not so for our Chinese companions! We got to enjoy their snores right through to the early hours. In fact you could probably toss a Chinese person into  a cement mixer and they’d still somehow sleep.

I still crack up at the memory of us returning to the car after visiting a medical clinic, and the school driver who had driven us there was out like a light, his socked feet sticking out of the car window.

Here’s some shots of our own, we couldn’t get enough of it!

Sidewalk nap anyone?

Sidewalk nap anyone? Taken in Shanghai.

I love this - he's carefully removed his shoes, opened the doors to the empty bus cargo hold and it's time to catch some zzz's. This was taken at Tiger Leaping Gorge.
