Summer is watermelon season in China. Selling, buying, and eating watermelon become national obsessions from May to September. In a land where 90% of the people live where it is beastly hot all summer, watermelon is a natural choice for a 'feel cool' food.
But one chap in Hangzhou has taken it to a new level. Literally.
There's a fun video clip making the rounds on Youku (the Chinese version of YouTube) of him riding around Hangzhou on a motor scooter with a watermelon balanced on his head.
(The site is in Chinese, but never mind. Just hit the play button and the clip will start.)
There's a lively discussion in the comments thread about whether or not the watermelon is real. Looks real to me, but who knows. You be the judge.
One of these days I may learn how to embed videos into blog posts, but not now. It's too hot.
