    Andrew, Tess and I visited the Yiwu Market last week. 58,000 factory outlets in one place. They have everything you can imagine but you can't buy anything as they are set up as a way to meet manufacturers. More than 50% of the world's Christmas Decorations are made in the Yiwu region!


    We saw some pretty cool stuff


    Andrew got lost in a Forest

    Tuppet found an amazing Ball shop

    I note it has changed from a definitive "goat" to a "sheep/goat". that is progress.
