What you need to know before your trail

Would you move 6,000 miles to be with the love of your life? Hannah did. Unfortunately her plan isn’t going terribly well. What was supposed to be a move to Hong Kong to start a wonderful new life with Sam is turning into a move to Hong Kong to spend occasional weekends with Sam, when he can get away from an unanticipated work assignment on the opposite side of the South China Sea. Still, she’s optimistic, if woefully unprepared for the intricacies of Hong Kong. Stumbling through the alien city, which she loves, she starts to build a life for herself. Things definitely look up when she finds a great boss to work for, and her best friend Stacy moves to the city too. But alarm bells ring as Sam seems to be getting a bit too cozy with his boss. And when things start going wrong at work, Hannah can’t help but wonder if she’s made the biggest mistake of her life.

Travel Guide

Hong Kong

Take a city like London or New York with its mix of architecture old and new. Then raze 99 percent of the buildings built before the advent of MTV. Pull the rest of them together as you might tug dishes atop a talbe cloth , until they stand shoulder to shoulder. Then set them at the foot of the Matterhorn, into which you carve steps instead of roads snaking to the top.This is to save residents from being run down too often but the cab drivers whose brakes are as weak as their navigational skills. Finally build high-rise blocks of apartments for seven million people into the mountainside.

“I’ve moved to a bustling twenty-first century ant colony bathed in neon lights”
