Description - Hanoi Stories by Pamela Scott
In Hanoi Stories, Pam tells of an unexpected side to this city, and of the people she came to know and love. During her time in Hanoi, Pam moved outside the cloistered expat world and became involved in the lives of everyday Hanoians - cyclo drivers, postal workers, university students, ordinary families. She also opened Hanoi's first English language bookshop and, among other things, took singing lessons, went ballroom dancing, had her fortune told Hanoi style, and ate some of the city's more exotic offerings. Once you have been seduced by Hanoi's charms it can be hard to escape. For eight years I kept reinventing myself to adapt to whatever job opportunities arose that would keep me there; leaving had been unthinkable.
