[As noted in the prior post, this is the last week of All Expo, All of the Time at Shanghai Scrap. We’re wrapping up some loose ends before moving onto – or returning to – other subjects.]
Loose end #2 – Expo sleepers.
No, I’m not talking about undiscovered pavilions or restaurants. I’m talking about all of the people sleeping on the southern end of the elevated Expo Boulevard that runs the length of the massive Puxi side of the Expo 2010 grounds. It’s a big place, after all, and a good visit exhausts the energy of even the fittest. So what to do? Pick one of the twin-sized benches on the elevated boulevard, slip off your shoes, and … snooze. Some afternoons – especially warm ones – it looks like a triage zone up there.
In the interest of documenting this perfectly understandable phenomenon, I present, as a gift to my readers, 36 Expo Boulevard naps, as photographed this afternoon. [ed. note: individual photos may contain more than one nap.]
