There are some things that I’ve seen in China really baffle me. It’s shocking how more people aren’t dead, maimed, or seriously injured. Here’s some things that I’ve seen in the past five days:
- Car tires attached to a rope and tied around student’s waists. Then they run as fast as they can down the field while the tire is flipping and bouncing behind them. I’m just waiting for the day when it knocks them out.
- An ambulance with its sirens and lights blaring was waiting at an intersection for about 4 minutes while cars drove by, completely ignoring it. It was only when the light turned green that the ambulance was able to move.
- A baby riding in the front seat of a car in a car seat, facing forward.
- A baby riding on somebody’s lap on a motorbike. Of course, neither the rider nor the driver had any sort of protective headgear on.
