It's not an unusual sight to spot people catching a few a minutes of shut-eye at any time of day in China—on park benches, at work, on the back of motorbikes, in a phone booth, at their desk...they can nod off just about anywhere. Just look at Adam Minters Thirty-six naps at Expo or the website Sleeping Chinese where there are literally hundreds of great snaps of people napping in the most unusual and often uncomfortable looking places and you'll get an idea of what it's all about.

We love this shot "Guiyang in Guizhou, this little guy is totally K.O.'d and snoozing happily away on his mama's apple cart, not a care in the world. A submission to the Ctrip China Travel Photo Contest, you can see more of Fabien's  great China travel photos at his Flickr photostream.
