hong kong views

in the depths of rural china

i went to china for work 2 months ago, after 3 plains and 24 hours travelling i arrived at this town, feixian in the middle of China, no english speakers and very excited people to see me!!I woke up in the morning and all was misty and yellow, had some dumplings and boiled veggies and went to the factory. It was 0 degrees and no heating. people working in their jackets....they make raffia hats and handbags and it usually takes them one day to handcrochet one of them. I couldnt find out what was their monthly pay but found out that renting a 2 bedroom place in the best area is $900 A YEAR.....woooollllaaaa......I beliebe those workers were getting paid maybe $5 a day?????what was also shocking is that one of this hats costs minimum $300 and they sell them all over the world. One of the bests clients are Angelina Jolie or Nicole Kidman........Somoeone in this story is making a lot lot of money and its not me!!
