I have lived in Paris for 10 years now and must say I love it. I have also lived and worked in New York, which of course I miss. I like my place to be simple to live in and welcoming and hope you'll enjoy it.
As far as work is concerned, I am a Phd candidate at the Sorbonne and an assistant teacher at University. I often travel in France or in the world for business reasons and I tend to stay at friends places or use airbnb rather than hotels: it's just a richer experience!
I wish you a wonderful stay !
