DAY 10: PHILLY FANS IN THE FACTORY
By 10am we had a car waiting outside to take us to yet another clothing factory, except this one was run by George’s girlfriend Vivian. By the time my hour and a half nap to the factory was over it was lunchtime and we made our way to a local restaurant for an amazing lunch. Vivian outdid herself with an amazing soup cooked in a coconut and a plethora of dishes of vegetables and meats.
After lunch we made our way back to the factory for the grand tour. We got to see the many stages of the production line from sample making to assembly line to quality control. It was truly amazing to see the scale that this factory was working at, each step of the way eliminating any inefficiency.
On one leg of the journey I spotted something that I hadn’t seen in months… A PHILLYS JERSEY! I have had people in China come up to me and ask if they could take pictures with me but this was the first time I went up to someone to ask for his picture. It was just something that was too good to pass up, what are the chances that there would be a Philly fan in a clothing factory in China? Probably about the same odds that I would have dry pits in clothing factory in China.
