Photos from a visit to Dongguan

Last spring I studied abroad in Beijing China and because of my previous study of maquiladoras in El Salvador and the gift of the book Factory Girls from my friend's mother, the only thing I was hell-bent on seeing in China was Dongguan--the factory city of the world.  As my friends made spring break plans to Thailand and Tibet, I managed to twist two of my friends' arms into taking a 30+ hour train-bus combo to Dongguan before going to Hong Kong.  We spent only two days in Dongguan, but I would like to believe it was only the first of many trips for me.
