Hi, I'm Marie, a 20-something food writer and law student.
Parisians can be a bit arrogant, so I was curious to meet Marie and Solal. They were from Paris and coming to stay with us for a month at the start of a year long visit to Sydney. They were not what I expected at all. They were warm and friendly and interested in Sydney. They were very quiet and considerate and a delight to have around the place. My kids thought it was very cool having French people staying. I admired the way they got their head around a foreign city, opened local bank accounts, got a job and found a flat to rent all in the space of a few weeks. And when they moved out of my place it was cleaner than when they moved in - they even vacuumed. Amazing guests. I miss them already.
