Pudong International Airport was packed! Queues everywhere! Bào Bó had been waiting in the check-in queue for ages and was dying for a smoke.

The couple in front of him had packed four suitcases full of rice and were now arguing ferociously with the clerk about the overweight fees. Rice!

They insisted it was because you couldn’t find any decent rice outside of China.  Bào Bó didn’t know if this was true as this was his first time ever leaving the country. He hoped it wasn’t true. All he had packed was three pairs of underpants and a spare pair of  解放鞋  shoes.

Now he was suddenly afraid. Would he starve to death in the UK?

He desperately needed a cigarette.
