Episode 31: A Canadian Expat in Beijing

Find out about challenges with the internet, cab drivers, and what the life of a Canadian teacher is like in one of the biggest cities on Earth.

Hong Kong sounds like an amazing place to visit and live.

Find out about the odd route Brandy Stern took to arrive in Hong Kong six years ago, and what she misses about home.
