    I am a Parisian who lives close to the Arc de

    Triomphe. The café that my family owns often gets a lot of tourists and I (unintentionally) end up having to drop out of my barista work for the day to become a tour-guide, helping tourists get to destinations and whatnot. I really should get paid for that!

    Everything about me is French.

    From my name to my appearance. I grew up in a Dutch town speaking French at home. Everyone says French men are so sincere and romantic and such. My father was the kind of valley-redneck-you-don't-wanna-mess-with French. He was the exception to the stereotypes.
