When a van doesn’t work – use your bike.
It’s unbelievable how many things are toted around on the back of bikes in China. I have seen a guy pack on more than 100 chairs on one before. (I wish I had a photo of that.)
Then there’s the guy with the styrofoam. (seen in my earlier blog post – “Trunk Space”)
Or the man who bikes around with fish tanks. It’s different from the US, but after all – not everyone can have a car in a city that’s population is 23 million and counting.
Traffic here resembles thousands of drunk drivers on the road.
Getting a license is extremely expensive here, so people often ride their bikes to get around town and – of course, make plenty of deliveries – whether it’s beer, styrofoam, or the next big thing.
One thing is certain – there’s plenty of space on the back of your bike.
