Despite its size (population over 4 million) and long history, Zhengzhou is not known as a tourist destination. I read in the China Morning Post that 80% of the world’s iPhones are manufactured in Zhengzhou, while the New York Times puts the figure at 50% . When I asked our Beijing friends about these notorious Foxconn factories I was told, oh no, China’s industry is all in North and East. When I asked our hosts in Zhengzhou, they said the same. But as we drove out of Zhengzhou to visit their home town across the Yellow River, our hosts pointed out a vast Industrial Zone, but said they didn't know what was there. I guess you might find the iPhone factory there. Both Anqi's parents are engineers (now managers) in the construction industry, but we didn't have the language resources between us to ask about the context of their work.
