Hong Kong-a marriage of East and West, where the old blends with the new, where ancient Chinese culture and civilization linger below towering structures of steel and concrete.
Beth O'Connor, former Olympian and Harvard graduate came to Hong Kong as the wife of Michael Chang, heir apparent to the Chang family empire. An empire that is crumbling.
