Sleeping People of China

You may have heard the term "The Sleeping Giant" being applied to China, but as German photographer Bernd Hagemann found out, the term may actually have a more literal meaning: Chinese people can sleep anywhere, anytime!

Indeed Bernd has documented this phenomenon: Here's a fantastic gallery of sleeping people in China, categorized as "hardsleepers" (those who sleep in pretty hardcore positions), "softsleepers" (who needs a little padding) and "groupsleepers" (those who sleep with friends, literally!)

It would be so funny to find someone sleeping like that!
But about that thing.. how are children supposed to play on it? It's kinda weird IMO :P

Oh, Ive heard of this!
I have a friend in China (near Shanghai) that speaks of this– there’s a specific word in Chinese that conveys the concept– they sleep almost ANYWHERE. I think it’s most prevalent at certain times of the year (like the Spring). People have a tendency to feel sleepy. We have 'spring fever' they have 'sleep fever'
