This was the scene as I passed a building site on my way to a Chinese lesson the other day. A worker was balanced on top of a concrete post, hammering away at the section underneath him with a pickaxe. It felt like some sort of cartoon joke - did he perhaps expect to float in the air as the column crumbled beneath him? Meanwhile, his foreman watched on unconcerned, perhaps wondering why a foreigner was taking a photo of such an everyday event. Health and Safety anyone?
