A migrant worker takes a rest in the evening under a flyover in Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province, Dec. 29, 2011. More than 100 migrant workers have taken here as "temporary homes" where the "bed" is actually an old blanket and a thin quilt. As the traditional Chinese Spring Festival is coming, many migrant workers, however, choose to stay in metropolitans longer to earn more before returning home for the festival. They can make about 70-80 yuan (about 11-13 US dollars) per day if favored by fortune. (Xinhua/Li Bo)
