In a newly constructed Kexue Main Road in Zhengzhou City, the usual grey asphalt pavement turns into a golden boulevard of corns which covered 2/3 of the six-lane road and stretched as long as 5km. According to local villagers, the newly harvested corns can be properly dried in a couple of days and packed for sale on the spot thanks to the sunny weather and good ventilation on the road.
When asked why they occupied the public road for private use, one villager explained: "The road used to be our land. The developers just came here and grab our land to build factories and compounds. We are sunning the corns on our own land, no big deal."
To prevent cars from driving over the corns, villagers put branches, beer bottle glass and reflecting road cones on the outline of the sunning areas.
