Usually I am writing detailed blogs about China Sourcing. But not this time. It is time to take a break from China Sourcing and celebrate life. One of the perks of being in China for over 10 years now is having the privilege of participating, in a small way, in the lives of my staff and friends in China. As I sift through all the memories of factory tours, difficult negotiations and solving a miriod of issues associated with each case, the things I remember the most from my 39 trips to China so far, are the personal memories. And what strikes me today as I write, is watching the children my close friends in China grow up. It is startling sometimes to see such big changes when I swoop in from the US 4 times a year.
