'Life in Hanoi is a series of stories of some amazing expats who did just that. Like the author, Pam Scott, these otherwise ordinary men and women took deliberate steps to invent a life for themselves in the exotic city of Hanoi. They came from a mixture of cultures and backgrounds, but they were not diplomats and high-flyers living in expat compounds on expense accounts. They all had one thing in common, a love of this beautiful Vietnamese city and its people.
Life in Hanoi reveals that you don’t have to be brilliant or famous or have some unique talent to try living in a completely different culture. All it requires is the desire and a little courage to step out into the unknown and dare to be different.' (Publisher's blurb)
