Lavie Tidhar. The Integrity of the Chain. (The Year’s Best Science Fiction 27th Annual Collection).

Shorter story, giving Tidhar’s usual non-westerncentric angle, this time on a young taxi driver from Lao, and his dreams of escaping his rural life, the moon, recently colonised by the Chinese, being his beacon. A strange robed fare (nb it’s ‘fare’ not ‘fair’!) and a trip to an eldery man with similar dreams and a home-made spaceship, put his dreams into perspective, in a neat little story.
