Hard Sleepers

I can appreciate these pictures more, especially after having returned from a weekend church retreat today…

ht: Neatorama for finding this link and these pictures about how the Chinese people can sleep just about anywhere.

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!)

For Asians, I think this is what makes falling asleep in church seem like a breeze!
