Single Bamboo Cane Row Boat

Today's collaboration with Cellar Image of the Day brings us this photo of the strangest row boat ever: a single bamboo cane!

Villagers from Chishui, near Zuiyi city, came up with the idea, reports News Express. They make the boats out of locally grown bamboo and hold races on the Pinzhou River.

"Participants can sit or stand on the piece of bamboo, and with a thin bamboo oar, they race and compete at other tasks," explained one villager.
