Summary: Going overseas is hard. Leaving friends and family behind. Traveling to a country where you probably don’t speak the language, and definitely don’t understand the culture. Foreign foods, foreign diseases. Loneliness.
Of course, it does have its compensations. Smoking. Casual sex. Functional alcoholism. Add a little danger and excitement, and it’s a difficult offer to refuse.
Expat Etiquette is a guide for all of those who want to travel to far-away and sometimes dangerous lands—for the best or worst of reasons—while retaining a modicum of style.
Expat Etiquette provides that essential advice you won’t find anywhere else, like how to drink bootleg liquor and not go blind, have an overseas affair, or negotiate with rebel groups.
