SHANGHAI, CHINA - AUGUST 24: (CHINA OUT) Migrant workers sleep on the street to avoid hot weather on August 24, 2007 in Shanghai, China. The city of Shanghai continues to be troubled by the heat wave with temperatures averaging 35 degrees centigrade for the day. (Photo by China Photos/Getty Images).

I saw this photo in the latest Figaro on the weekend and mis-interpreted the caption. I thought these were Chinese migrant workers in Shanghai who had nowhere to live. Turns out they're sleeping on the street to avoid the hot, cramped apartments during a heatwave. Oh yeah...Getty images wanted $100 or so to use this photo and I thought "bugger that".
