Today something slightly different. Instead of picturesque views and old relics let’s have a look at modern China.

One of my friends teaches Chinese at a French school in Shanghai. She organised a trip for her students and the schedule included a visit in a sock and textile factory, to which I was also invited and gladly went. Sorry for the quality of the photos – the light was weird and the time was scarce.

Weirdly enough, I had a feeling like female socks and tights were sorted by women, and the male ones by men.
