What's on Weibo
It’s been some time since our last newsletter; we were too busy going around Beijing’s various hot pot places to report the latest trends in the world of Chinese fondue. Over the past months, it seems that one Chinese celebrity after the other is opening up their own hot pot place. We visited Rock Hotpot in the Songzhuang artist community to find out what Chinese celebrities, hot pot, and rock music have in common. See our latest video report
Rarely have we seen so many propaganda clips about the same topic: Chinese state media are sharing a new video on the Belt and Road strategy every single day. Be careful: watching that Sesame Street-style song about China’s One Belt, One Road, could mean you’ll be stuck with that song in your head all day. 
Behind all the Belt and Road madness, this month has also been the month of Fan Yusu, the Beijing migrant worker whose autobiographical essay conquered the hearts of Chinese netizens. Keep an eye on this one, we will bring you more Fan Yusu news in the week to come.
