People who viewed Alejandro also viewed these locals

I am a peoples person, easy to get along with and always willing to learn new things. Highly motivated individual with a brilliant personality. What people like most about me is my compassion and understanding and that i am very easy to talk to. I guess my unusual talent would be my ability to read people. I have grown to love this city so much that i cant imagine living anywhere else. it is easily accessible by transport from one end to the other, the liberal life style and acceptance other cultures and races. what would make me a great CityUnscripted Local, is the fact that i am a living testimony of an immigrant turned local and it feels like i have lived here all my life and would not trade this city for any other.

My friends come very often to Amsterdam and I still find new places to show them because this city is buzzing! I love to make people enjoy and discover new things because i love it myself. Originally from Paris, I have lived in New Zealand and Australia and travelled a bit in Asia and South America. My new passion for Bartending is the opposite of yoga but they fit perfectly with me. A few years ago I worked for a French lonely Planet ( Petit Fute) in Amsterdam. So if you would like to see a photo exhibition, have a coffee in a trendy place near a canal and finish the night in a hipster club or the other way round, become a Local with me!
