Transporting 12 Bags of Rice, the Chinese Way
Published on March 21, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
Meet Mr. Zhang, 40 years old, from the great town of Huai’an in Jiangsu Province. Mr. Zhang has his own business selling rice, wheat and cooking oil. One day he got an order for 12 bags of rice from a local restaurant. Since he was very busy he decided to transport all in one haul.
Mr. Zhang drives an electric scooter which must be a strong vehicle. Each bag of rice weighs 25 kilo, Mr. Zhang himself at least another 75. That is a grand total of 375 kilo. Can’t be that easy to drive, fortunately the streets seem rather empty.
