The source of the polystrene box bikes

Everybody knows that the tourist authorities in Shanghai have a constant flow of locals riding bikes overloaded with polystyrene boxes for foreigners to take pictures of and post to their Facebook friends.

On a recent jaunt to the northern outskirts of town I’m happy to report that I found a whole street of these bikes getting loaded up for the tourists. It was absolutely no coincidence that the boxes were being turfed outside the fruit and vegetable markets.
