When you live in a tourist-centred city it is easy to miss out on much that city has to offer. “I can always do that another time” is the best friend of laziness.
Becoming a tour guide has really made me examine Paris through new, fresh eyes and I wish I had done so much more in the nearly 3 years that I have lived here.
Having friends to visit helps to rectify this though. Last month we had a visitor over from ‘le Yorkshire’ and she and I decided to check out the Georges Braque exhibition at the Grand Palais.
