This viral video proves two things:
1. Bees like sugar.
2. Foraging bees aren’t likely to sting.
And I love the way this street vendor keeps on working. If this were the US, there’d be a major freak out, the fire and health departments would be called and an exterminator would show up to spray poison. If you keep calm and carry on you get your mochi and the bees get a free lunch.
Thanks to Winnetka Farms for the tip.
