Day 65 – It’s going to rain cucumbers some day…

One of the crazier things I’ve seen since coming to China:

Produce hanging in midair...goodness! That's a hazard!

Right, so my friends and I were walking down Qingdao Road, when I looked up and saw a guy swinging a stick at the power lines.  I look up and what do I see?  He’s trying to smack a gigantic squash/cucumber off the power line. That has got to be some kind of regulation violation! Can one incorporate power lines into one’s garden? I don’t know…but even if I could…I wouldn’t want to risk getting electrocuted.  Besides, just how heavy are all those vegetables? I’m a little concerned that all that weight will bring down the power lines. Apparently, Chinese people don’t care about the same things I do. One of those babies could randomly decide to fall off and crush some poor unsuspecting (and unfortunate) soul who happens to be standing around underneath!
