The Weirdchina Family Makes An Appearance In Shandong, Weifang, China 潍坊中国

Here is a sneak peak of the appearance the weirdchina family made in Weifang, China 潍坊 in Shandong Province 山东. Weifang is known as the kite capital of the world.

We received a very warm welcome, so many people greeted us and at times it felt like a mob! It's always a little weird, when people say they have seen us on a Chinese TV channel or in a local Chinese newspaper.

Networked and made some excellent connections, both business and personal, because of this,  I think we will be coming back here very soon to check out other potential money making opportunities.

Over the next couple of days, I will be adding more photos and videos to our blog at - We saw lots of cool things here and we would love to share it all with you.

Hi this is my 2nd comment on your post. I left my 1st comment about Evan eating ice cream.

I've read several of your posts and I think I might consider moving to China lol. After making a lot of USD in America, then I will spend my money in China :) I love the food over there. Things are so much better off than in the US. I'm from HK but my parents are from different parts of China and I've been to China many times during holidays. Things are much cheaper over there... ahh i miss China.

I would love to see more updates!
