Day 35 in Beijing: Sleep Where You Can, When You Can, Part III

Sleep Where You Can, When You Can, Part III

 

Walking home from work a few days ago.

It was quite warm and the weather was beautiful.

Probably around 5:30 P.M., Beijing Time.

This was the sight that welcomed me on the sidewalk.

 

Construction workers sleeping during the day.

Construction workers sleeping during the day.

 

In many American cities, these people might be thought of as homeless.

 

Not in Beijing,

 

They are construction workers.

 

They are simply resting because of the afternoon heat.

When they noticed me taking pictures, the workers started smiling and saying, “Ni Hao!”

 

Sleeping on cardboard.

 

A thin mattress.

 

A blanket.

 

Or Nothing at all.
