Shanghai is big and crossing the street can be exhausting. Cars really don’t stop so a rest is in order. This Father and Daughter are doing just that taking little rest waiting to cross. A typical Chinese squat. Give it a try, I bet you can’t do it and if you can get down like that (I cannot which makes using squat toilets fun) to hold it for a period of time is a challenge. I have seen many Chinese do it and do it well and look comfortable. There is nothing comfortable or relaxing about it when I do it. My feet, knee, and bottom do not work like that.
