Local ingenuity

During my time in Shanghai I have continually refrained from gawking and photosnapping at local activity here.  I feel like the camera only furthers the distance between me and my surroundings.  However, when I saw this I could not help but take a photo.

The craziest thing I've seen carried on a bike

The craziest thing I have seen on a bike

This guy was carrying this glass-door refrigerator by himself on a standard bicycle.  I couldn’t believe how far he was leaning over to compensate for its weight.  Somehow he still made room for his legs to pedal.

Again and again I am impressed with all the examples I see of people making due and being clever.  Back in the US we could definitely learn from this type of resourcefulness.
